GREEN CRUISE GLOBAL
Green Cruise Global is the first metrics-based environmental sustainability tool specifically designed for the cruise ship industry. Modeled on the success of our award-winning Green Hotels Global sustainability program, Green Cruise Global measures and benchmarks carbon emissions, freshwater consumption, waste diversion and onboard environmental management practices.
Each ship’s environmental performance is tracked through an online dashboard. Crew and cruise line managers can use the dashboard to measure and monitor environmental progress. Passengers can access the dashboard to view the cruise line’s commitment to environmental sustainability and disclosure.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
By traveling on a cruise ship participating in Green Cruise Global, passengers indirectly make a real and lasting difference in the lives of those in need.
Our projects positively impact local communities. In addition to reducing carbon emissions, the projects cause much needed social and economic benefits to local communities, especially families living in poverty. Examples include providing efficient cookstoves to replace air-polluting solid fuel for indoor cooking; providing clean drinking water to communities that would
otherwise burn wood or charcoal for boiling contaminated water; and providing economic incentives for indigenous populations to protect local rainforests.
Every passenger cruising on a Green Cruise Global ship takes comfort in knowing their voyage is 100% carbon neutral. Our team of professionals measures the carbon footprint of each ship. We then neutralize its emissions through offset projects that remove or reduce an equal amount of carbon in another location.
Our portfolio of carbon offset projects includes VCS and Gold Standard verified carbon credits.
