To bring the climate impact of our entire fleet to zero, MSC Cruises will be carbon-neutral, compensating all the CO2 emissions from the fleet as of January 2020.
Today’s ship technologies inevitably produce CO2 emissions. MSC is committed to reduce these and other emissions as technology progresses with an ultimate target of zero emissions. We invest and work with shipyards and research institutes to achieve this goal, but in the meanwhile we will offset all CO2 emission of our fleet.
MSC Cruises will offset the emissions directly and on behalf of its guests through a portfolio of projects, including a growing portion of blue carbon offsets.
MSC Cruises will immediately source existing blue carbon offsets, while working to develop additional projects that are generated from the oceans and that enhance marine biodiversity and support communities that rely on the sea.
MSC Cruises will partner with leading international providers and standards to ensure projects of the highest level of integrity and will invest in projects that provide quantifiable community benefits, protect the environment and support the UN Sustainable Development Goals
All of which, while continuing to roll-out to every new ship (and retrofitting) the latest and best available maritime environmental technology. And stepping up investment in supporting the development of next-generation advanced technology for zero-emissions operations.
