Around 60 per cent of Cruise Baltic’s partners have invested in social, economic and environmental sustainability initiatives, according to the Cruise Baltic Sustainability Report 2021.

Some of these initiatives have included the implementation of low-emission buses in Gothenburg, Sweden; an increase in onshore spending in Copenhagen, Denmark; the opening of a solar-powered terminal in Tallin, Estonia; and the addition of shore power facilities in Warnemünde, Germany.

“Sustainability has many facets, and for the cruise industry to be sustainable, we must take all of these aspects into account,” said Claus Bødker, director of Cruise Baltic. “Many of our partners have spent the time during the pandemic well by developing great initiatives within both social, economic and environmental sustainability.

“Many great initiatives saw the light of day in 2021, and we have indeed taken yet another step towards our vision of making cruising a sustainable vacation in 2030. Due to the pandemic, some things also had to be postponed but this simply means that many significant things are ahead of us in 2022.”
