About DSP

Danish Soil Parnership (DSP) is an initiative taken by the five regional councils of Denmark in dialogue with the industry and the research institutions. The aim of the partnership is to help companies develop green solutions, while at the same time dealing with the challenges of contaminated soils. Combined, the five regions are the biggest actor on the Danish market for remediation technology.
