Costa Cruises presents sustainability report

21 Jul 2016 12:35 GMT

Report includes fuel consumption, scrubber and emissions reduction data.



Genoa-headquartered Carnival Corporation brand, Costa Cruises, has presented the 10th edition of its Sustainability Report, entitled 'Sea You Tomorrow - On course for the future', highlighting the main sustainability results achieved by the company in 2015.

Environmental protection, shared value creation and responsible innovation are the cornerstones on which Costa Cruises has built its sustainability initiatives, described in the report in three sections entitled 'Sea', 'You' and 'Tomorrow'.

The document sets out Costa's path to sustainable growth, the main projects carried out and the key goals reached on the route to complete integration of sustainability aspects into its business model, its blueprint for the future. The report can be downloaded in the 'Sustainability' section of the Costa Cruises website at: http://www.costacruises.co.uk/B2C/GB/sustainability/Pages/report.aspx or www.costacruise.com/sustainability

Costa Cruises is involved in a number of ship energy efficiency projects aimed at the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, protection of water resources and recycling of waste. The main results in the environmental field obtained in 2015 were:

- a 3% year-on-year decrease in fuel consumption per passenger/day.

- a 2.3 % year-on-year reduction in the company's carbon footprint.

- year-on-year emission reductions: 11% in SOx and 3% in NOx and PMs.

- installation on 7 ships, equivalent to 46.6% of the fleet, of the ECO exhaust gas cleaning system - a technology with a filtering system that is said to remove more than 90% of pollutants from the exhaust gases irrespective of the ship's operating condition.

- 4.8 % year-on-year reduction in energy consumption.

One of the main features of Costa's plans for the future is the current construction of the first cruise ships to be powered at sea by liquefied natural gas (LNG). These newbuilds are due for delivery in 2019 and 2021. The introduction of newer and more fuel-efficient vessels has been facilitated by recent improvements in the regulatory framework and in the development of a gas bunkering infrastructure.

The 2015 Sustainability Report is audited by Price Waterhouse Coopers (PwC). It is drawn up in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) - G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines and reflects the mapping of Costa Cruises' different areas of intervention and engagement, summarized in the 'Sustainable Development Goals'; this activity includes an assessment of the correlation between each goal and Costa's business activities.
