Icelandair Hotels pledge to: reduce waste and increase recycling, choose nature-friendly products and services; emphasise use of local products and Icelandic ingredients; follow the current environmental legislation and aim to exceed it; inform guests about our environmental policy and how they can participate and help; and educate employees and service providers about environmental issues. In 2017, Icelandair Hotels were awarded the Environmental Company of the Year by Business Iceland SA. Their most recent project includes ESG* reporting for their operations and offsetting their carbon footprint for 2019.
