English French



This third OECD Environmental Performance Review of Iceland shows that the people of Iceland enjoy a very good environmental quality of life, with excellent water quality, low air pollution and easy access to nature. Indeed, one-fifth of the country’s area is under some form of nature protection. Nevertheless, the report argues that the quality of some environmental services, such as waste disposal and wastewater treatment, could be further improved, and calls for additional efforts to achieve Iceland’s green growth objectives.
