Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NCLH) has published its 2019 Stewardship Report as part of the company’s global sustainability programme, Sail & Sustain.

The Stewardship Report highlights the company’s initiatives in environmental, social and governance since its last published report. These include the establishment of a Technology, Environmental, Safety and Security Committee of the company’s board of directors, creation of a dedicated department to coordinate strategy across the organisation, and the removal of single-use plastic bottles through a partnership with JUST Goods. NLCH also participated in several philanthropic efforts, including the relaunch of the Hope Starts Here hurricane relief campaign and the Encore Moments campaign for celebrating everyday heroes.

The company has also achieved a ‘B’ climate change score from environmental non-profit organisation CDP, which evaluates 9,600 companies worldwide annually. This is an improvement from the ‘C’ rating the company previously held, which is also the average for the marine transport sector.

“Despite the public health challenges we currently face, our commitment to protect and preserve our oceans, the environment and the destinations we visit, while maintaining our culture of diversity, equality and inclusion in the workforce, remains at the very core of our everyday business operations,” said Frank Del Rio, president and CEO of NCLH. “We are proud of our accomplishments to date and remain committed to driving a positive impact on society and the environment through the advancement of our global environmental, social and governance strategy, while at the same time providing truly exceptional cruise vacation experiences to our guests.”
