Royal Caribbean Group aims to achieve zero carbon emission cruises by 2050

Royal Caribbean Group and Carnival Corporation have signed partnership agreements with the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping, committing to collaboration and contribution to the development of zero carbon technologies for the maritime industry.  

The Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center is a not-for-profit, independent research and development centre founded in 2020 working across the energy- and shipping sectors with industry, academia, and authorities. The centre explores viable decarbonisation pathways; facilitates the development and implementation of new energy technologies; builds confidence in new concepts and their supply chains; and defines and matures viable strategic pathways to the required systemic change. 

“We look forward to working with a strong alliance of some of the best minds in science, engineering and business who share our long-term ambition for a successful and sustainable decarbonisation of the global maritime industry,” said Tom Strang, senior vice president of maritime affairs for Carnival Corporation. “As part of our commitment to decarbonisation and carbon footprint reduction efforts, we are continuing to innovate to effect change, and joining the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping is another important step as we continue our ongoing focus to establish a path to zero emission cruising over time.” 

Both Royal Caribbean Group and Carnival Corporation aim to operate zero carbon emission cruises by 2050, aligning with the centre’s overall aim of decarbonising the maritime industry by 2050. 

“Collective action is imperative as we deploy our Destination Net Zero strategy to decarbonise our business and catalyse innovation for our industry," said Jason Liberty, president and CEO of Royal Caribbean Group. “By joining the Center, Royal Caribbean Group aligns itself with a network of like-minded companies with an unrelenting drive to find solutions for a sustainable future.”
