OR Group nominated for the Nordic Council Nature and Environment Prize

18.05.2016

The OR Group was nominated for the Nordic Council Nature and Environment Prize in 2015. The company’s contribution was the CarbFix project as well as the savings in carbon emissions obtained by the Group’s district heating systems. Carbon dioxide emissions would almost double in Iceland if oil were used for space heating rather geothermal energy. District heating in the capital area has spared the earth’s atmosphere about 100 million tons of carbon dioxide since the beginning of operations, compared to heating with oil. 

The Faroese energy company SEV was awarded the Nature and Environment Prize at a ceremony in Reykjavík in October 2015.
