Use of tap-water in Copenhagen

I thought this was an interesting piece of information coming out of the United Nations Climate Change Summit in Copenhagen. On the official website ( for the event it says:

“Water -- Due to the very high quality of groundwater in Denmark, all potable water at the conference venue will be tap-water served in decanters or at self-service automatic dispensers. This implies a considerable energy saving advantage because production, transportation and disposal of water bottles will be avoided.”

Good for them for practicing what they preach and for setting a good example when it comes to water usage! And yeah for groundwater – a great source of drinking water for everyone! It’s also great to see that their quality of groundwater is doing so well. It bodes well for the future generations.
