Iceland Travel and its long history of protecting Iceland’s fragile environment
Iceland Travel (an ISO 14001 certified tour operator) is the country’s largest and oldest tour operator. The company was established in 1937 and therefore understands the fragility of Iceland’s natural environment. For years, the company has been a part of reforestation efforts in Iceland and has operated its own birch grove. But it doesn’t end there. Now the company has put in motion their plan to offset carbon emissions in all their tours through Kolvíður, the Iceland Carbon Fund (ICF). They have also begun the process of mapping the company’s carbon footprint, with the aim of neutralisation. They intend to start implementing the new plan before the end of Q2 2020.
