A Greener Future
MAKING up less than 1% of the global maritime community, cruise is a drop in the ocean when it comes to commercial shipping.
Yet despite our small footprint, we are leaders when it comes to developing responsible environmental practices and innovative technologies to reduce emissions and waste.
Operating sustainably at sea is a business imperative, it’s in the cruise industry’s best interest to keep the world’s oceans pristine, which is why our member cruise lines are doing everything they can to ensure that each new generation of ships is greener than the last.
Millions of dollars are being invested retrofitting existing ships with the latest clean tech.
The cruise industry is one of the most heavily regulated maritime industries with robust, clearly enforced standards and all CLIA cruise line members comply with international, national and local rules and regulations.
CLIA cruise lines have spent a lot of time and money to ensure each new generation of ships is more eco-friendly than predecessors and our members are committed to fitting existing ships with the latest technology as part of continued improvements across the industry.
