Technological development is a key environmental issue. The call for environmentally friendly technologies is in all areas. Many countries consider it necessary to invest in technology and developments in this field. Nations are endeavoring to build up in the green technology including energy, natural resources and waste.

Renewable energy and energy efficiency are prominent, as it is clear that if the goal of reduced greenhouse gas emissions is to be achieved we must make changes in energy matters. Many Icelandic high tech companies are leading in its field in terms of quality and eco-friendliness. They generally emphasize quality, efficiency, power savings, water savings and sanitation. These two key elements, quality and eco-friendliness, are extremely important when marketing Icelandic technology.
