Icelandic Whale Watching Company Certified as Green

Reykjavík-based whale watching company Elding received a full certification from the Green Globe 21 association earlier this month, for which it has been striving for the past two years.

Elding’s boats—its flagship is fueled by hydrogen—have already been credited with the Blueflag international eco-label, but the company also wanted to fulfill the conditions of the Green Globe environmental management systems.

The company’s policy on sustainability includes striving to find non-polluting energy sources to run its operations, minimizing the consumption of energy, minimizing the use of materials required by its activities and the production of waste, while improving recycling.

The Green Globe label certifies that Elding’s operations are sustainable.
