Our services are free of charge. However, we expect delegations to handle all other costs related to the visit.

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.

Visit House of Green

An introduction to Denmark’s green transition

Almost all our tours begin with a visit to our showroom “House of Green”, which is located in the heart of Copenhagen.

In the showroom, we provide guests with an introduction to the Danish approach to a more sustainable future and present examples of Danish solutions that can inspire to solving global challenges concerning energy, water, cities and circular economy.

House of Green is primarily open for foreign business representatives, politicians, civil servants and journalists. However, every third month we open the showroom for other visitors at our  Open House sessions.

House of Green is funded by the Danish Industry Foundation.

What is the cost of a State of Green Tour?

State of Green’s assistance with planning tour programmes is free of charge. However, we expect the visitors to handle all bookings and costs related to flights, local transportation, all meals, accommodation and translation if needed. Please note that some organisations/companies may require payment for a tour, but State of Green does not charge any of the Danish companies or organisations that are visited by delegations on a State of Green Tour.

Is it possible to do a standard one-day programme?

All tours are tailor-made and consequently, there is no ‘standard’ tour. Most tour programmes are between 1-3 days. If the delegation plans to stay in the regional area of Copenhagen it is usually possible to have 2-3 site visits per day. This also depends on the group size. If the delegation is interested in visiting an island (for instance Bornholm or an organisation like Project Zero in Southern Denmark), time for domestic travelling must be expected.

Is it possible to arrange a programme for a student delegation?

State of Green creates tour programmes for business representatives, politicians, civil servants and journalists interested in experiencing Danish solutions within the areas of energy, climate, water and environment. Therefore, we do not create tours programmes for student delegations. However, all students are more than welcome to attend our Open House sessions that are held four times a year.

What is the difference between State of Green and House of Green?

State of Green is a not-for-profit, public-private partnership between the Danish Government and Denmark’s four leading business associations: Confederation of Danish Industry, the Danish Energy Association, the Danish Agriculture & Food Council and Wind Denmark. We foster relations with international stakeholders interested in discussing their challenges and bring into play relevant Danish competencies and technologies that enable the green transition.

House of Green is State of Green’s showroom and visitors’ centre located in the heart of Copenhagen. At House of Green, visitors will get an introduction to Denmark’s green transition – focusing on the specific challenges and solutions that are most relevant to them.
