IT’S crit­i­cal that our agent mem­bers have fac­tual an­swers to their cus­tomers’ ques­tions.

As an in­dus­try we have both a mo­ral re­spon­si­bil­ity and busi­ness im­per­a­tive to sus­tain the places we sail and the com­mu­ni­ties that sup­port our in­dus­try.

CLIA Cruise Line Mem­bers re­duce cruise ship air emis­sions through in­vest­ments in new ship de­sign and the pi­o­neer­ing of new tech­nolo­gies is at the core of CLIA Cruise Line Mem­bers’ air qual­ity ef­forts.

Cruise lines are in­no­va­tors in de­vel­op­ing cut­ting edge ship de­signs and sus­tain­able en­vi­ron­men­tal prac­tices, in­clud­ing in­vest­ing bil­lions of dol­lars in ex­haust gas clean­ing sys­tems, en­ergy-ef­fi­cient de­sign stan­dards to lead to a 30% re­duc­tion in new ma­rine ves­sel CO2 emis­sions by 2025; hull paints with spe­cial non-toxic coat­ings that re­duce fuel con­sump­tion; and ini­tia­tives to pro­vide emis­sions-free en­ergy.

Be­cause of cre­ative ap­proaches to im­prov­ing cruise ship air re­duc­tions, new cruise ships that en­ter ser­vice to­day, no mat­ter their size, are among the most en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly ships in the his­tory of com­mer­cial ship­ping.
