In harmony with the environment and society

Landsvirkjun is a state owned company. Our role is to consistently endeavour to maximise the potential yield and value of the natural resources we have been entrusted with, in a sustainable, responsible and efficient manner.  The efficient generation of electricity, in harmony with the environment and society, enables the Company to actively take part in the development of a dynamic and profitable labour market at the forefront of the international market.

Landsvirkjun has established an ambitious strategy on corporate social responsibility which states that it is the Company’s role to create value, to respect and protect natural resources and the environment and to share its expertise in order to effectively contribute to society. Landsvirkjun ensures that its policy on corporate social responsibility is executed by setting clear goals and by following these six main guidelines in its operations.

Landsvirkjun's Community Fund

The Community Fund was established in 2010 in order to effectively allocate funding to a variety of good causes including a number of charities, cultural and educational projects and sports and leisure projects. The fund’s policy is to support projects with broad community relevance and the potential to positively impact Icelandic society. The Community Fund Board is appointed by Landsvirkjun’s employees.
