Iceland is set to begin issueing climate change certification for all of its Arctic and Antarctic areas, a move that could help reduce pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
The company is now one of the only companies in the world to have the technology to provide climate change protection certificates, and will begin issuing them on Nov. 1, according to Iceland spokeswoman Anna Dvorak.
The certificates will be used to monitor and track compliance with emissions standards, the company said in a statement to CNBC.
Iceland’s Arctic and Antarctica certification will be issued to all its businesses and their employees, and to companies in other parts of the world, including Australia, Canada, China, Japan, Mexico, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
In the U.S., Iceland will begin offering its Arctic Climate Climate Change Certification Program to customers who want to make sure they comply with existing emissions standards.
