The tool is designed to make it easier to evaluate sustainability and set sustainability goals for the future
Cruise Baltic and consulting group COWI have developed ‘Sustainable Cruise Indicators,’ which can be used globally to measure environmental sustainability in different cruise regions.
The tool uses four indicators to measure environmental sustainability; written strategy; communication of the strategy; emission reduction during calls; and management of waste and wastewater.
“Sustainable development is in the interest of everyone, which is why we are very proud of our work with the Sustainable Cruise Indicators,” said Paul Sørensen, senior project manager for society, economics and environment at COWI. “With this tool, measuring sustainability becomes more transparent and concrete for all parts of the cruise industry.”
The tool is designed to make it easier to evaluate sustainability and set sustainability goals for the future, such as Cruise Baltic’s own aim to make cruising a sustainable option for holidays by 2030.
“Sustainable Cruise Indicators makes it easier and more transparent to evaluate sustainability work,” said Claus Bødker, director of Cruise Baltic. “By developing a tool like this, we hope to encourage destinations and cruise lines to be ambitious and to strive to be as sustainable as possible.”
