Environment Agency

The Environment Agency is a subsidiary of the Ministry of Environment, Industry and Trade. Its work areas include Environment Protection, Land (Faroese Cadastre), Maps and Geodata, Research, Recreational areas, the Land Registration Act and the National Register.

The Environment Agency is an active force in the community and employs various specialists within its areas of responsibility. A significant part of the Agency’s activities is to disseminate information to the public, authorities and other interested parties. This is accomplished, in part, by a dynamic website.

The Environment Agency is in charge of the Faroe Islands’ implemented agreements that fall within the Agency’s domain. In addition, the Agency is participating in various Nordic and international cooperations.
