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 sus­tain­able-de­vel­op­ment
