Sustainability is the cornerstone of Blue lagoon’s philosophy
The dynamic, sustainable relationship between man and nature is the cornerstone of Blue Lagoon’s philosophy. This relationship informs every aspect of the guest experience. From the healing water that fills the lagoon to the electricity that lights the complex, every coordinate of the visitor journey draws its power from the earth’s geothermal resources. In short, wellness at Blue Lagoon is inseparable from the wellspring of renewable energy brought forth at the Svartsengi Resource Park.
Environmental balance is manifest in the closed eco-cycle from which most of Blue Lagoon’s resources—geothermal seawater, electricity, heating, hot water—are derived. In the extraction and utilization of geothermal energy, nothing is wasted, while greenhouse gas emissions from the power plant are incorporated into the production of methane, a clean gas. More recently, scientists at Blue Lagoon’s R&D center have discovered ways to cultivate algae with CO2—a significant step in the company’s goal of eliminating its carbon footprint and generating a sustainable future.
