Landsvirkjun’s operations emphasise an integrated vision of viability, reliability and harmony of its activities with the environment and society. Utilising resources in a sustainable manner and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions are clear objectives in Landsvirkjun’s environmental policy. The most common natural resources utilised by Landsvirkjun are geothermal energy and hydropower. An emphasis is placed on identifying and minimising the environmental aspects of the operations. To ensure continuing success the company monitors significant environmental aspects and continual efforts are made to improve them.
We have, from the start of our operations, worked on binding carbon by planting vegetation and forests and we have supplied information on our carbon footprint since 2008.
We wish to make a contribution towards enabling Iceland to meet its international obligations and it is therefore our declared policy to become a carbon neutral company.
