On 25 February 2012 the Danish Ministry of the Environment (Miljøministeriet) announced that 115 employees will be made redundant - 15 jobs in the Danish Environmental Protection Agency (Miljøstyrelsen) will disappear, as well as around 80 in the Danish Nature Agency (Naturstyrelsen) and 20 in the National Survey and Cadastre (Kort og Matrikelstyrelsen).

The Ministry has saving requirements of 2.5 percent in the administration in 2012 and 5 percent in 2013. The redundancies at the ministry are part of the public sector saving scheme 'Effective administration of the State' that will affect most ministries and agencies in Denmark.
