BALTIMORE — Danfoss, a leading manufacturer of high-efficiency electronic and mechanical components and controls for air-conditioning, heating, refrigeration and motion systems, today announced that Jorgen M. Clausen, Chairman of the Board, has received and accepted a membership from former President Bill Clinton to join the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI).

The membership emphasizes Danfoss’ commitment to developing and employing innovative solutions globally to help establish a more sustainable world. Membership in the CGI will provide Danfoss the opportunity to forge new partnerships with government officials and other business leaders who share similar values and goals with the purpose of generating new ideas, learning about new and best practices and taking action to make a difference.

Established in 2005 by President Bill Clinton, the CGI convenes global leaders to devise and implement innovative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges. Furthermore, to fulfill the action-oriented mission of CGI, members devise practical solutions to global issues through the development of specific and measurable “Commitments to Action” that they then put into motion within their own organizations.
