CLIA ommitment to reduce global fleet carbon emissions
The International Cruise Association (CLIA) has announced an industry commitment to reduce global fleet carbon emissions by 40% by 2030 base on 2008.
Arnold Donald, president and CEO of the International Cruise Association and Carnival Company, pointed out that "we are looking forward to the future of IMO's carbon-free shipping industry by the end of this century. Our commitment to reduce carbon emissions by 40% by 2030 is a solid first step towards achieving this vision.
The commitment to reduce global fleet emissions by 40% is the result of a process of consensus-building and cooperation among cruise company leaders. Achieving the target of 40% emission reduction will be measured against the 2008 benchmark, and the emission rate will be calculated based on the total carbon emissions of fleets, the total number of beds of ships and the total distance of navigation.
The International Cruise Association plans to report annually on the industry's progress in meeting its commitments. Although member companies of the International Cruise Association each have responsible and sustainable plans to reduce waste and protect the oceans, the commitment to reduce carbon emissions is a major measure they have jointly taken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Emission reduction will be promoted through ship design and energy efficiency innovation technology.
