About Iceland Unlimited
At Iceland Unlimited, we cherish our natural environment and communities in Iceland. That’s why we want to take actions to protect the local habitat and minimize the negative impact that tourism can have.
With this sustainability policy, we want to highlight the responsible practices guiding our operations. As Iceland Unlimited is part of the Travel Connect house of travel brands, we follow their certifications and policies to show our dedication to these issues.
Iceland Unlimited is a member of Travelife, an internationally recognized training management, and certification program for sustainability in tourism. We are at the first stage, Travelife Engaged, and are working towards stage 2, Travelife Partner. To reach this stage, we must meet over 100 sustainability criteria.
We hope to reach the highest level, Travelife Certified, in 2024. This shows that we’re working hard to demonstrate professionalism and integrity when it comes to environmental issues.
A series of Sustainable Development Goals were adopted as part of the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. These focus on the 3 pillars of sustainable development: economy, society, and the environment.
We want to play our part in reaching these goals and have built our sustainability policy around those relevant to our operations. The following are the goals we will focus on:
Responsible consumption and production (12)
Our aim is to emphasize resource efficiency and waste reduction. One of the ways we do this is by following the 3 Rs of waste management: reduce, reuse, and recycle. We also aim to support local businesses as much as possible.
Decent work and economic growth (8)
Tourism plays a fundamental role in Iceland’s economy and can impact its social and natural environments. For that reason, we want to ensure a sustainable approach in all our operations.
We aim to only select local suppliers that are fully insured, licensed and who uphold high standards of comfort and safety for our clients. And by focusing on local businesses, the revenue generated by visitors stays in the local communities.
