Today’s Sustainability Matters is brought to you by PONANT
PONANT No.1 in Climate Protection Measures
Nothing is as strong an endorsement of real-world performance as the tick of approval by a credible third party.
Our small ship luxury expedition company, PONANT, ranked number 1 in a recent study by NABU (Nature And Biodiversity Conservation Union), assessing the performance of cruise companies in terms of existing climate and environmental protection measures, having scored first place in 7 of the 8 categories: Paris climate goals, climate strategy, emission reduction, efficiency measures, shore power, stop the use of heavy fuel oil, nitrogen oxide catalysts, soot particulate filters.
This recognition reflects the abiding ethos of responsibility that forms a core part of PONANT’s management commitment to sustainability and minimising our environmental footprint. This includes significant investment in new-build eco responsible ships, implementing cleaner technologies such as the end of using heavy fuel oil and the introduction of Liquified Natural Gas (LNG), biofuel, shore power, catalytic converters and hybrid power for our vessels. PONANT continues to lead the way and we look forward to showcasing these practices onboard with our trade partners’ clients. I invite you to discover more at au.ponant.com/ sustainable-development
