Continued support for the Arctic Circle


Two women sign a contract.

EFLA will continue supporting Arctic Circle for two more years after renewing its agreement recently. EFLA joined Arctic Circle in 2013 and looks forward to more collaboration in the coming years.

Education and encouragement

"EFLA's approach is to make sustainability the core of all its projects. EFLA has demonstrated this commitment by participating in Arctic Circle from the beginning in different capacities," according to Birta Kristín Helgadóttir, EFLA's Director of Energy.

"Each year, EFLA eagerly hosts seminars at the conference to support Arctic region issues and foster a deeper understanding of sustainability across all fields. EFLA sees these seminars as a platform to share valuable information, inspire others, and encourage meaningful work. This commitment to education and engagement drives us to continue our involvement in the Arctic Circle," adds Birta Kristín.

Diverse topics

In recent years, EFLA has organised and provided seminars on diverse topics for the Arctic Circle Assembly in Iceland. EFLA staff will continue to give workshops at the next conference and participate in other parts of the Arctic Circle.

At the last Arctic Circle Assembly in October of last year, EFLA organised a workshop called "Shipping Toward the Green Future ", which deals with port energy exchange. EFLA's staff and other experts discussed energy exchange in Iceland to ports, focusing on the role of the fishing industry in green energy solutions.

Birta Kristín Helgadóttir and Ásdís Ólafsdóttir, CEO of Arctic Circle, recently signed the agreement, marking the continuation of our fruitful collaboration.
