Harpa re­ceives The Nor­dic Swan Eco­l­a­bel

as a conference hall.

Harpa has received The Nordic Swan Ecolabel as a conference hall. The Swan is the official Nordic Ecolabel based on independent certification and criteria that confirms the strict environmental and quality requirements of the operation. The purpose of the Swan is to promote the sustainable development of society with the benefit of future generations as a guide and to offer consumers a choice of environmentally friendly options.

Guðlaugur Þór Þórðarson, Minister of the Environment, Energy and Climate, recently presented Svanhildur Konráðsdóttir, CEO of Harpa, with the Swan's Ecolabel.

Harpa has set a course for social responsibility and wants to set an example in environmental and climate issues. This is done, among other things, by systematically reducing greenhouse gas emissions from operations and minimizing waste and the carbon footprint of events held in the building. Harpa has also received recognition for having fulfilled all 5 Green Steps of the Environment Agency, which are the key to environmentally friendly public operations.
