About the Partnership

We collaborate for a sustainable music life. The Partnership for Sustainable Development in Music was founded in 2022 by leadership representatives from a group of companies and organisations from the Danish music scene, coming together to strengthen industry collaboration and network at the leadership level. Our vision is that through collaboration, we can develop and catalyse data-based solutions to the sector-wide challenges that impede a more sustainable music scene.

The founders of the partnership are Danish Artists’ Union, Rythmic Music Conservatory, Koda, Gramex, Vega, Association for Danish Artists and Bands, IFPI Denmark, Jazz Denmark, Greener Music, Live Nation and Promus.
