SUSTAINABILITY


CHARTING A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE


Our commitment to sustainability goes above and beyond our efforts to reduce our environmental impact. It is also reflected in the way we support our employees and those who choose to travel with us, as well as how we interact with our partners and the communities and places we visit.
 
The MSC sustainability programme is organised around four key pillars: Planet, People, Place and Procurement. This programme reflects our journey towards becoming an environmental leader in the global cruise sector and our continued efforts to create a more sustainable future for our industry.
