Icelandic Glacial Natural Spring Water Declared Certifiably Sustainable

Zenith International, Europe’s leading food and drinks consultancy declared Icelandic Glacial truly sustainable because it doesn’t deplete or permanently damage the source from which it’s taken.

As the world’s first CarbonNeutral® certified bottled spring water for both product and operations, Icelandic Glacial delivers a water of exceptional purity to consumers with a “net zero” carbon footprint. The company uses 100% natural green energy in the form of geothermal and hydroelectric power to fuel production. 

Icelandic Glacial’s water source is Iceland’s Hlíðarendi Spring, part of the Ölfus Spring System which was formed during a massive volcanic eruption more than 4,500 years ago. Ölfus Spring is a renewable resource, replenished annually by infiltration of rainfall and snow melt over uninhabited lava fields.



“Sustainability is what sets Icelandic Glacial apart from other bottled waters, and we work hard to ensure that we are providing the purest water with the least amount of impact on the environment,” said Jon Olafsson, chairman and co-founder, Icelandic Glacial. “We are proud to share one of Iceland’s most sustainable natural resources with the rest of the world.” 
In addition to being carbon neutral and from a sustainable source, Icelandic Glacial’s label and plastic bottle are 100% recyclable.  For more information about Icelandic Glacial, visit
