No industry has a stronger interest in protecting the oceans we sail and the destinations we visit than cruise. It is not simply our responsibility: operating sustainably is a business imperative.
2019 Global Cruise Industry Environmental Technologies and Practices Report
The cruise industry has made unprecedented, year-over-year progress in implementing sustainable technologies and practices according to the third annual Global Cruise Industry Environmental Technologies and Practices Report.
While cruise ships comprise far less than 1% of the global maritime community, cruise lines are at the forefront in developing responsible tourism practices and innovative technologies. Our industry leads in environmental stewardship. The entire shipping industry benefits from early adoption of innovative technologies by cruise lines - many of which did not exist five to 10 years ago such as exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGCS), LNG as fuel for passenger ships and shore-side power capabilities.
CLIA cruise lines are leaders and innovators in responsible tourism and offer the best way for travellers to experience the world.
Economic, environmental and cultural sustainability is of the utmost importance to the cruise industry. We support local economies not just by bringing guests and crew to their shores but by using local services and goods on our ships. We sustain +1.1M jobs and $134B in economic impact worldwide..
