Cruise line sustainability advances showcased in New Wave magazine
September 7, 2023 – The cruise industry’s latest advances in sustainability and destination stewardship are among initiatives showcased in a new specialist publication released today by Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) in Australasia.
The glossy magazine, New Wave, highlights some of the technological advances being pioneered by cruise lines worldwide as they work to accelerate the maritime transition towards net zero.
“The cruise industry represents less than 1% of world shipping, but it has taken a leading role in deploying new environmental measures aimed at reducing emissions and improving the sustainability of its operations,” Mr Katz said. “Cruise lines are investing billions of dollars in new ships, new technologies and new propulsion systems that are taking the industry closer to its net zero goals.”
The latest edition of New Wave is the third produced in Australasia, outlining cruise line advances including the latest alternative fuels, new sources of clean energy and the latest initiatives to protect the marine environment.
It also features wildlife protection projects, marine scientific studies, community development efforts and sustainable food supply initiatives.
“An enormous amount of work is underway worldwide to achieve net zero cruising and ensure greater protections for the environments and communities we visit,” Mr Katz said. “New Wave highlights these efforts in a form that is relatable and accessible, and can be shared with industry stakeholders and the wider cruise community.”
New Wave is available now and has been produced in partnership with Big Splash Media. It is distributed in the current edition of Cruise & Travel magazine and will be provided to CLIA member travel agents and industry stakeholders as part of CLIA’s Cruise Month initiative in October.
The magazine can also be viewed and shared online: New Wave.
