A Declaration on Climate Issues was signed yesterday at Höfði House in Reykjavík, Iceland. Participation far exceeded expectations: a total of 103 businesses and institutions pledged to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and cut waste. The progress will be monitored, and the companies will regularly publish information on their actions.

This joint venture was launched by the City of Reykjavík and Festa – the Icelandic Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility, and the signing of the Declaration marks the formal commencement of the project.

Find out more on the City of Reykjavík‘s site.
