Our sustainability journey

At Cunard, we are taking committed action to protect the environment and invest in our communities and people to deliver a positive impact – not just for today, but for the long term. Our sustainability agenda supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and is made up of several important priorities.

Protecting the environment

We are invested in looking after our planet, and addressing climate change is one of our top priorities. We invest significantly in new technologies and fleet improvements to minimize the impact of our air emissions. We are committed to the reduction and responsible management of waste, and preserving the value of natural resources, to ensure our guests can continue to cruise in even cleaner, more efficient and sustainable ways.

Partnering with our destinations and communities

We continually strive to promote sustainable tourism by contributing to our communities in a positive social, environmental and economic way, working in conjunction with local governments, trade associations, tourism organizations, and other community stakeholders. We also recognize our responsibility to preserve and protect the ecosystems and biodiversity of the oceans and the destinations we visit.

Investing in people

Health, wellness and equality are core to our sustainability agenda. We are committed to a just corporate culture, based on inclusion and the power of diversity, operating with integrity, trust and respect for each other at all times.

At Cunard, sustainability is one of our top priorities and is a key part of our future. We’ve taken some important and impactful steps, but we are on a journey and our sustainability commitments do not stop here.

We are continuing to find new ways to leave a positive impact on the world we love.

Our goals and aspirations

This year, with our parent company Carnival Corporation & PLC, we are introducing our sustainability focus areas. These six areas are where we are focusing our sustainability efforts in support of our 2030 goals and 2050 aspirations. In each focus area, we have identified goals, targets and aspirations that will guide our actions to further strengthen our sustainability performance.

At Cunard, and with our parent company Carnival Corporation & plc, we have committed to a number of 2030 sustainability goals and 2050 aspirations.
