Carnival Corporation & plc signs sustainable tourism contract

Published on : Tuesday, June 19, 2018

Carnival Corporation & plcCarnival Corporation & plc (CCL) has recently signed a contract of cooperation with The Bellona Foundation regarding sustainable cruise industry practices.

 
The largest cruise company of the world, CCL manages nine global cruise line brands. Among them are Carnival Cruise Line, Princess Cruises, Holland America Line, Seabourn, P&O Cruises (Australia), Costa Cruises and Cunard.

 
Under the new cooperation agreement, both parties are in tandem and work together to decrease the environmental impact of cruising. The agreement is based on a shared vision of a more sustainable industry, and perhaps a zero-emission future.

 
The overall target of the contract is to contribute to and endorse sustainable operations. It will focus on solutions, regulations, and legislation that highlight environmentally-friendly vessels for the benefit of the environment, local destinations and travelers.

 
Of late, the International Maritime Organization or IMO declared a strategy for decreasing greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. That policy is an important framework for the joint cooperation agreement.

 
“Sustainable operations are a top priority for our business, and as the world’s largest cruise company, our global cruise line brands have taken and continue to take a leadership role for sustainable tourism,” says Michael Thamm, group CEO, Costa Group & Carnival Asia for Carnival Corporation. “We are deeply committed to protecting the environment, and that includes the oceans and seas in which our vessels sail and the communities in which we operate.”

 
“Working together with leading environmental NGOs such as The Bellona Foundation will help us to achieve our vision to provide our guests with extraordinary vacation experiences while meeting and often exceeding our environmental commitments,” he added.
