“We always try to turn a ‘no’ into a ‘yes’, and we try to turn ideas into reality,” says Lars Krarup, mayor of Herning Kommune. The municipality is working hard to create a safe, innovative and inclusive environment both for its 87,500 inhabitants and for the numerous companies who have based themselves in Herning Kommune. Herning Kommune is very proud and takes good care of the businesses in the municipality. “We score really highly on business satisfaction – we’re actually a leader in Denmark. I, as well as other civil servants, frequently go out and talk to the companies to ensure they have everything they need. We are willing to change things if there’s something they’re not happy with,” explains Krarup.
