The United Nations has used Copenhagen as a hub for global and regional operations since 1957, albeit from three different locations. At present, the Danish Capital is home to some 1,800 staff working from UN City Campus 1 on Marmormolen and Campus 2, which is the UNICEF state-of-the-art high bay storage facility located in the container port in the Northern Harbour.
Every year, UN City welcomes approximately 80,000-100,000 people for meetings, conferences and guided tours. Among key functions of the organizations in Copenhagen are procurement, supply chain and human resource management, health and innovation to mention but a few. While the 11 UN organizations working from out of Copenhagen vary in size and mandate, they share a common agenda – the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be achieved by 2030. UN City thus constitutes a hub for UN operations as well as an SDG hub for business, academia and the public to connect with to advance the 2030 agenda.
