BUILDING THE FUTURE OF CRUISING
Comitted to promoting responsible travel
“We are steering a course towards a lower carbon future and, by 2050, will achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions”
Can cruising be sustainable?
At MSC Cruises we believe it can be. With our cruise sustainability programme we are introducing cleaner fuels across our cruise ships, promoting responsible travel through our shore excursions, reducing, reusing and recycling waste on all our ships and producing our own freshwater on board directly from the sea.

our sustainability programmeOur journey towards sustainable cruises is organised around four key pillars: Planet, People, Place and Procurement. This translates into a drive to continuously improve our fleet’s environmental performance; caring for all employees and promoting diversity and inclusion; working to ensure that our impact on the coastal communities that we reach remains positive; and responsibly sourcing the products and services that we purchase.
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 Cruises is a people-focused company, employing tens of thousands of people of multiple nationalities worldwide. Our number one priority is keeping our passengers and crew safe and well. Our crew play a very important role in making our guest experience a success, and we know how important it is to support their well-being.
Our cruises allow people to visit some of the most beautiful and exciting destinations that the world has to offer – and we want to help to keep them that way.
We promote more responsible travel and deliver greater social and economic outcomes for communities.
Our cruise sustainability actions also apply to our procurement policy. Every year, we procure thousands of different items to run our operations, from engine parts to hand soap, crew uniforms to food and drink and we need to do this thoughtfully and responsibly.
