The Resource Square is a web-based market place for Icelandic industries, companies and individuals. It was set up by the Environmental Agency of Iceland to address the missing connection between parties generating certain biodegradable waste and by-products and those who can use it. On the marketplace by-products can be advertised and innovators can ask for specific materials they need. The marketplace promotes more sustainable use of natural resources, thereby reducing waste and CO2 emissions.

Since 1995, North Sailing offers Whale Watching tours from Northern Iceland. The tours start from Husavik to the Skjálfandi Bay or from Hjalteyri to see the Eyjafjörður fjord. In addition, week-long tours to Greenland to experience the Scoresby Sund fjord are offered. All North Sailing ships are restored vessels given a new life.
North Sailing respects the nature and strives to be sustainable in every way – from using local food and old wooden vessels to taking part in technical development and retrofitting their ships with electric engines. Due to their development project that created a Regenerative Plug-In Hybrid Propulsion System, they are able to offer carbon neutral whale watching.
North Sailing also participates in research, and respect the birds and other wildlife in the area. North Sailing has received several awards, both nationally and internationally, for their activities in sustainable tourism, carbon footprint reduction and regional development.
