What is the Green Map of Reykjavík?

The Green Map of Reykjavík is a joint international project of Nature.is, the Green Map® System, the city of Reykjavík and the University of Iceland. The goal of Green Maps all around the world is to make eco-friendly options in the fields of culture, commerce and travel services more visible and accessible to all. Green maps have been developed in over 600 municipalities, cities and neighborhoods in 55 countries. Iceland is the first country which classifies the whole country according to the Green Map system.

The printed edition Green Map of Reykjavík is the first of its kind here in Iceland and is based on the online version Green Map of Iceland here on www.nature.is which covers the whole country of Iceland with over 3.000 registrations in 100 categories.

Green Map is a living system and adjusts itself to the changes taking place in society. It is the hope of the publisher that green maps will become entirely unnecessary within a few years as green thinking will have become the rule, and not the exception, as it is now. Until then everyone is free to register on the Green Map of Reykjavík and the Green Map of Iceland as long as the activities of the person/company in question meets the conditions and criteria that are inherent in the Green Map system.

The Green Map of Reykjavík is labeled by the Nordic Eco-label the Swan, printed by the Eco-labeled printer Oddi.

Basic registration on the online version of Green Map of Reykjavík and Iceland is free and more detailed registration can be bought by paying a moderate annual fee. For assistance please contact us via tel. 483 1500 or write to us at nature@nature.is.
