BUILDING THE FUTURE OF CRUISING
At MSC Cruises, sustainability is not just a buzzword but a long term business commitment.

our sustainability programme
Our journey towards sustainable cruises is organised around four key pillars: Planet, People, Place and Procurement. This translates into a drive to continuously improve our fleet’s environmental performance; caring for all employees and promoting diversity and inclusion; working to ensure that our impact on the coastal communities that we reach remains positive; and responsibly sourcing the products and services that we purchase.
We believe sustainable cruises are possible and we are committed to responsible travel by continuously pushing the boundaries of what is technically possible at sea.
We are actively engaged in the development of next generation environmental technologies and cleaner fuels to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.
The welfare of our employees is our main priority. MSC Cruises is a people-focused company, employing tens of thousands of people of multiple nationalities across the world.
More than 85% of our employees work on board our ships.
We collaborate with local authorities, community groups and partners, such as the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), to share information and integrate policies and strategies to support responsible tourism management.
Together, we promote more responsible travel and deliver greater social and economic outcomes for communities.
Our cruise sustainability actions also apply to our procurement policy. From large mechanical parts for our ships to ingredients to feed thousands of people at a time, down to the smallest details, like toiletries, and medical items, we need to buy a huge amount of supplies for our fleet, crew and guests.
Managing environmental, social and ethical issues in our supply chain is critical, and we take a robust approach to this across all areas of procurement.
