Our environmental commitment.
Cunard and our parent company Carnival Corporation & plc take our environmental responsibilities very seriously and are committed to reducing our environmental impact.
We recently achieved key sustainability targets for the company and committed to new far-reaching goals as we continue to support our environmental priorities with concrete actions and improvements.
From significantly reducing single-use plastics to cleaner and more efficient energy systems, and from lessening food waste to using water more judiciously and much more, the corporation and its brands continuously invest in maintaining a world-class culture of compliance among every one of its crew members and shoreside employees.

Single use plastics.
We are committed to significantly reducing all non-essential single-use items, including plastics, on board our ships by 50% by the end of 2021. By the end of 2019, we had reduced the sourcing of approximately 80 million plastic items and approximately 95 million other single-use items, including straws, cups, lids, stir sticks, cocktail picks, toothpicks, butter foils and plastic shopping bags, which have been eliminated or replaced with sustainable alternatives wherever possible.
