On Friday, an agreement has been reached on financing for the activities of Grænvangur through 2026. Established two years ago, Grænvangur is a cooperative forum for Governmental and business leaders, with a focus on climate issues and green solutions. At the time the agreement was finalised, five new supporters were announced: Brim, Icelandair Group, Íslandsbanki, KPMG, and Kvika.
Prime Minister Katrín Jakobsdóttir opened the first phase of a new multimedia exhibition entitled Green Future (is: Græn framtíð). The exhibition, which will be complete in October, is dedicated to Iceland’s contributions relating to climate issues. The Green Future exhibition is located on the fourth floor of Gróska Innovation and Business Growth Center, on the premises of the new offices of Business Iceland and Grænvangur. It sheds light on Iceland’s progress and history in harnessing green energy, describes Iceland’s climate targets for the future, and introduces the many solutions Icelandic entrepreneurs have to offer in foreign markets.
The exhibition is operated by Grænvangur and Business Iceland and is based on the efforts and ideas of a large number of contributors, including historian Stefán Pálsson and geologist Sævar Helgi Bragason. Exhibition design and construction is by Gagarín.
