Icelandic Glacial

Since its founding, Icelandic Glacial has always believed that protecting our planet is simply smart business.
From the very beginning, Icelandic Glacial has embraced the notion that environmental stewardship is not an obstacle to success, but an essential element of it. Indeed, being good for the planet and for people is imbedded in the brand’s DNA.

Icelandic Glacial’s sole usage of hydroelectric and geothermal sources of power is just one of many examples of its values as an environmentally responsible producer. As with everything, Icelandic Glacial is always seeking a better way and in 2007, its relentless efforts on behalf of the planet led the company to achieve CarbonNeutral® status for both its product and its operation. After all, what’s the point of providing such pure, pristine water if the environment suffers in the process?

How The CarbonNeutral Company helped:

Icelandic Glacial

  • We undertook a cradle-to-gate calculation of Icelandic Glacial’s carbon footprint, including shipments from supplier’s warehouses around the world, business travel, waste and employee commuting
  • We advised Icelandic Glacial around internal reduction activities, involving restricting flights & travel wherever possible; switching to video-conferencing; using low energy lighting; reducing packaging; recycling waste and encouraging suppliers, customers and employees to adopt the same practices
  • We offset the remaining unavoidable emissions to net zero by sourcing high quality carbon offsets from renewable energy projects in Europe, China and India
