Festa is a non-profit or­gan­isa­tion with over 150 as­so­ci­ated mem­bers, which are com­bined mostly of Ice­land’s biggest to smal­lest com­pan­ies, in ad­di­tion to pub­lic or­gan­isa­tions, uni­ver­sit­ies, the City of Reyk­javik and a few oth­er mu­ni­cip­al­it­ies.

Festa is a catalyst for change and a bridge builder between and within the public and private sector and focuses on sustainable development through the SDGs, climate change and corporate social responsibility in its broad sense.
