By 2030, we want to offer the first climate-neutral cruises and significantly reduce CO2 emissions. By 2050, the entire TUI Cruises fleet (Mein Schiff and Hapag-Lloyd Cruises) will set sail in a climate-neutral manner. To this end, the TUI Group submitted concrete reduction plans to the NGO Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) - a cooperation between the United Nations Global Compact, the World Resources Institute and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) - in August 2022. A rigorous verification process ensures that the ambitious CO2 reduction targets are in line with those of the Paris Climate Agreement.
To ensure maximum climate efficiency, we have always invested in the most modern, low-emission ships. The ships in the Mein Schiff fleet that entered service between 2014 and 2017 consume 30 percent less fuel than comparable ships. For the two most recent additions to the fleet in 2018 and 2019, the savings are as high as 40 percent. Hapag-Lloyd Cruises' ships built in 2013 and later are also characterised by high energy efficiency. We make full use of what is technically feasible in our fleets.
