SUSTAINABILITY REPORTS

At MSC Cruises, sustainability is not just a buzzword but a long term business commitment.

our sustainability programme

Our commitment to a greener future is outlined in our easy-to-understand Sustainability Action Plan. We're working on several fronts: reducing our emissions to zero, improving the air around us, using resources wisely, supporting the places we visit, taking care of our team and guests, and choosing our suppliers carefully. These efforts organised into our main areas of action - Planet, People, Fuel and Technology, Supply Chain and Responsible Tourism to show our dedication to protecting the environment, supporting our communities, and ensuring a sustainable future for cruising.

PLANET

We are fully committed to playing our part in addressing climate change and promoting ocean biodiversity. We are determined to accelerate our transition toward net zero emissions by 2050. We work closely with leading technology companies, shipyards, and fuel providers to push the boundaries of what is possible.

MSC Foundation

MSC FOUNDATION

Together we can make a difference
As a family-owned company with a global seafaring heritage that dates back to 1675, we care passionately about the seas and have a real love of the beautiful places and inspiring cultures we take our guests to explore all over the world. This has led us to launch many life-changing initiatives over the years. The non-profit MSC Foundation was founded in 2018 to lead and coordinate these conservation and humanitarian commitments worldwide, developing the longstanding philanthropic partnerships of all the MSC Group companies and launching many new initiatives. Now a leading global corporate philanthropic organisation supporting ocean conservation initiatives, our MSC Foundation works to restore the critical balance between people and nature. Utilising our global reach and unique knowledge of the sea, we take immediate action to protect and nurture the blue planet, its peoples and our shared cultural heritage. We likewise help disaster-struck populations toward recovery and support vulnerable communities around the world to realise their full potential through education, sustainable development, and humanitarian medical programmes.
