Harpa donates 1000 trees

To Kolviður, the Iceland Carbon Fund

Harpa starts the new year by donating 1000 trees to Kolviður, the Iceland Carbon Fund, for the second year in a row. The Iceland Carbon Fund (ICF) offers carbon offsets through tree planting and was founded in 2007 by the Icelandic Forestry Association and the Icelandic Environment Association.

The gift is part of Harpa's green journey, which since 2015 has worked diligently to reduce the negative environmental impact of its operations and reached the important stage in 2021 of completing four of the five Green Steps.

The goal of Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Center is to set an example in environmental and climate issues by reducing greenhouse gas emissions from operations and thus take an active part in the fight against climate change.

Together, these gifts from Harpa will form a 2000-tree forest that will sequester about 200 tons of carbon during its lifetime.
