Landsvirkjun takes leading role in international effort against climate change

February 21, 2007

GROCC's objective is the encouragement of international solidarity on responses to increasing greenhouse gases and global warming, whether in regard to scientific research, economic initiatives, or culture. A Landsvirkjun working group took part in writing a joint GROCC declaration.

In addition to Landsvirkjun, more than 80 companies and organisations throughout the world have now signed this declaration and pledged to work on its grounds. Numerous leading figures in a variety of areas have also declared their personal support for this project. Friðrik Sophusson, the managing director of Landsvirkjun, is among them, while Icelandic President Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson has also taken an active part in Roundtable work ever since its inception.
