Carnival Corporation released a report detailing the company’s sustainability efforts and progress towards its goal of “Sustainable from Ship to Shore.” The report highlights Carnival’s work in marine conservation, responsible sourcing, and waste management among other areas.
The carnival sustainability report is a document released by Carnival Corp. which outlines their progress in the fields of environmental protection, labor rights, and safety.
Carnival Corporation & plc, the world’s biggest cruise operator and parent company of nine worldwide cruise line brands, today published its 11th annual sustainability report, which follows the widely accepted Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standard.
The report, titled “Sustainable from Ship to Shore,” covers Carnival Corp.’s sustainability efforts through the end of fiscal year 2020 and necessary 2021 updates, as well as a summary of the company’s and its cruise line brands’ complete COVID-19 answers.
What’s Hot Right Now
Following the success of Carnival’s 2020 sustainability objectives, this year’s report sets 2030 sustainability targets as well as ambitions for 2050 in six key areas. The business reveals its main objectives, targets, and long-term ambitions for each area, which will be used to drive future activities and, in turn, improve its environmental, social, and governance performance.
Carnival Corp.’s long-term sustainability strategy, which was developed to mirror the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, will concentrate on the following six main emphasis points:
—Economy in a circle (waste reduction)
—Well-being and health
—Inclusion, equality, and diversity (DEI)
—Conservation and biodiversity
Carnival Corp.’s declared goals in each of these categories are summarized below. On the company’s website or in the 2020 Sustainability Report document, you may find a complete list of the company’s present activities, short- and long-term goals, and future ambitions.

Action on Climate Change The business is dedicated to establishing a decarbonization route and will continue to implement measures to decrease emissions over time by switching to alternative fuels. Carnival leads the cruise industry in the usage of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to power cruise ships as part of its strategic goal to reduce its carbon impact. In addition, 40 percent of its fleet has shore-power capability, allowing ships to utilize shoreside electric power in locations where it is accessible.
Economic Circularity Carnival Corp. plans to implement a “circular economy” approach, working with its supply chain partners to minimize waste by establishing a “closed loop” system for material usage and reducing single-use products. Food waste biodigesters are being installed across the fleet to reduce the amount of food waste.
Tourism that is both sustainable and profitable The business recognizes its need to respect the home ports and worldwide communities it visits, as well as to contribute to the preservation of those communities’ culture, history, and natural resources.

Health and Well-Being Carnival also recognizes its duty to offer a safe working environment and conditions for all workers and those working on behalf of the business. In order to better support its workers’ physical and mental health, encourage social connection with family and friends, and promote a balanced lifestyle, the business is striving to extend its well-being initiatives.
Inclusion, equity, and diversity Carnival and its brands are dedicated to creating a diverse and inclusive workforce, as well as offering a pleasant work environment and equitable chances for professional development, as a global employer with team members from over 100 countries.
Conservation and Biodiversity The business is committed to maintaining environmental best practices across its operations, investing in biodiversity and conservation initiatives, and collaborating with its supply chain partners and the communities that its ships visit to help restore and preserve their local ecosystems.
