The Danish Industrial Foundations, Paperback / softback Book

The Danish Industrial Foundations Paperback / softback


Industrial foundations are foundations that own companies.

Typically, they combine charitable and business goals.

Some global companies such as IKEA, Robert Bosch or the Tata Group are foundation-owned, but nowhere are they as numerous as in Denmark.

Three of the four largest Danish companies - the pharma company Novo Nordisk, the shipping company A.P.

Moller-Maersk, and the Carlsberg brewery - are all foundation-owned.

Surprisingly, very little has been written about what industrial foundations are, and how they operate.The Danish Industrial Foundations provides a comprehensive overview.

The book covers aspects such as theory, law, taxation, economic importance, company performance, governance and philanthropy.

The book is the result of a large collaborative research project, led by the author, on industrial foundations.
