Royal Caribbean Cruises has shared some of the progress it is making towards becoming a zero waste company in its latest annual Sustainability Report.
Building on the achievements of its 10-year Save the Waves goals, which saw the company build its most efficient cruise ships and reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by nearly 25%, Royal Caribbean is now exploring other ways it can run its operations more sustainably.
“At Royal Caribbean, we are working to put sustainability into the heart of our business,” said Richard Fain, chairman and CEO of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. “We bring 5,000,000 guests to nearly 500 ports around the world every year, and we understand our responsibility to do so in a way that protects the oceans that we sail every day. Our mantra is continuous improvement, and that especially applies to our environmental performance.”
In the report, the company noted the expansion of its Advanced Emissions Purification program, as well as a new set of goals for 2020, which were established with input from World Wildlife Fund.
Here are some other highlights from the report:
