Under a new sustainability plan, Carnival Corporation aims to cut particle emissions in half by 2030.
Despite a 10% capacity growth since 2015 and another 19% capacity expansion on order, the cruise giant intends to reduce particle emissions by 50% compared to 2015. Carnival also intends to reduce CO2 emissions by 40% by 2030, compared to 2008.
Carnival plans to connect 60 percent of its ships to shore power by 2030 and 100 percent by 2050 when it hopes to be carbon-neutral in its ship operations.
Waste reduction, sustainable tourism, health and well-being, diversity and biodiversity, and conservation are among the six sustainability emphasis areas chosen by Carnival Corporation.
Chief Maritime Officer Bill Burke stated: “This comprehensive set of 2030 goals and aspirations for 2050 being introduced for the first time reaffirm our ongoing commitment to sustainability and will guide our actions to further strengthen sustainability performance throughout all aspects of our global operations while supporting opportunities for sustainable growth across our organization over time.”
Other objectives include:
By the end of 2021, there will be a 50% reduction in single-use plastic items.
By 2022, there will be a 30% reduction in food waste, and by 2030, there will be a 50% reduction in unit food waste.
By 2030, Advanced Waste Water Treatment Systems will be installed in more than 75% of the fleet.
By 2030, the shoreside employee base should mirror the diversity of the world.
Carnival already claims to be the industry leader in the use of LNG to power cruise ships, with 11 ships expected to join by 2025, accounting for approximately 20% of total capacity.
