How can we help?
Through our “State of Green Tours” service, we can assist your delegation in planning a tailor-made programme with business meetings and site visits to facilities that match the particular interests of your delegation.
Since 2008, we have hosted more than 400 delegations consisting of companies, politicians and civil servants from all over the world and we are happy to welcome you to Denmark on a State of Green Tour.
Our services are free of charge. However, we expect delegations to handle all other costs related to the visit. Due to limited resources, we, unfortunately, cannot accommodate all requests for assistance. Should this be the case, we cooperate with a number of organisations who might be able to assist you. See a full list of our Tours Network Partners.
What can you visit?
Whether you are planning a fact finding mission, looking for investment opportunities or potential partners for upcoming projects, we can connect you with Danish companies, utilities, organisations etc. who can help you solve your particular green challenge.
Based on your specific challenges and requests and our in-depth knowledge of the Danish stakeholders’ areas of expertise and market focus, we can arrange visits to different types of facilities – from power plants, biorefineries and wind farms to recycling stations or wastewater treatment plants. We can also set-up business meetings with relevant Danish stakeholders such as consulting companies, research institutes or government agencies etc. based on your area of interest.
To find inspiration for your visit, we encourage you to explore the many solutions featured on our website or browse through the list of potential partners. You can add these directly to your request.

Visit both Denmark and Sweden
State of Green has, together with our Swedish counterpart Green Tech Visits, created a solution for high-level international delegations, who may be interested in visiting both Sweden and Denmark, but have previously struggled with finding the time to travel to both countries.
With this collaboration between State of Green and Green Tech Visits, it will be possible for these delegations to visit the two countries in one day. A short 30-minute train ride or an equally short drive across The Oresund Bridge will give the delegations plenty of opportunities to learn about green solutions on both sides.
Why Denmark and Sweden?
Both Sweden and Denmark have numerous exciting and significant site visits, that can be very relevant for all types of delegations. For example, in Copenhagen, you can visit multiple sustainable urban development projects, such as the Northern Harbour and the Carlsberg area, or grab an electric bike and experience one of the greenest cities in the world. On the other side of Oresund, the delegations can experience Malmö and Skåne, which has been described as a green cluster where cleantech-companies can develop new green solutions.
Making the small effort to visit two different countries in one day, can have a tremendous impact on the various delegations. It gives them the opportunity to compare and contrast how policies and development projects are planned and run in two separate nations. A delegation will be offered a first-hand experience of two countries and two different ways of solving the green challenges of the future and learn from the results.
To arrange a visit to Denmark and Sweden with State of Green and Green Tech Visits, please contact Linda Stafsing from the latter, or visit stateofgreen.com and fill out a tour request form.
State of Green has developed a small guide to a sustainable stay in Denmark.
This can be a good starting point for inspiration.
