Commercial exploitation of ice and water

In 2017, the Government of Greenland published a new strategy for the export of ice and water from Greenland’s large fresh water resources, where the large inland ice sheet alone represents approximately 10% of the world’s total freshwater resource.

Two of the strategy’s key recommendations are, among other things, a revamped tax model and to designate outlets that are obvious both in relation to extraction and infrastructure. The work to identify obvious places has already begun.
