Environmental report

Emissions of greenhouse gases rose by 26% from 1990 to 2014 if net carbon capture through land reclamation and forestry is not included. CO2 emissions were around 4,600 tonnes in 2014. The increase was about 15% if net land reclamation and forestry are included. Emissions increased most from manufacturing and chemical use, or by 79%, but also in energy production (69%), waste (52%) and transport (39%). Emissions from the fisheries sector, on the other hand, decreased by 43% and from agriculture by 4%.

This report by Fisheries Iceland sets out the principal facts on energy use in Icelandic fisheries and forecasts for the future. Fisheries enterprises wish to set a good example and make a significant contribution towards the goals which Iceland and other nations of the world have adopted in the above-mentioned Paris Agreement and aim to achieve by 2030.
