TUI Group operates cruise ships across three brands – TUI Cruises, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises and Marella Cruises.
Carbon emissions and air pollution from sulphur and nitrogen particles and other fine particulate matter pose environmental challenges for the cruise industry. We are constantly improving the environmental performance of our fleet by investing in new, more fuel-efficient ships.
In the past year we achieved a further 6.5 % carbon efficiency improvement across our cruise operations. That’s an overall 11.7 % reduction in CO2 emissions per passenger night compared to our 2015 baseline. Our ongoing programme of refits to existing ships and investment in new-build vessels that deploy the latest environmental technologies helped achieve this. Improvements in waste and fresh water per cruise passenger night were achieved as part of the fleet renewal process and use of enhanced water desalination facilities across the cruise businesses.
