Carnival Corporation recently declared that it is making “meaningful progress” toward its sustainability targets, which include lowering greenhouse gas emissions and waste.

Recently, the company released its annual sustainability report, which highlighted its environmental performance across a range of criteria. Carnival claims it is on track to meet several of its 2030 targets early.

“Since we’re so aggressively tracking toward all our 2030 sustainability goals, we’re evaluating new interim targets along our pursuit of net zero GHG emissions by 2050,” says Josh Weinstein, CEO and Chief Climate Officer of Carnival Corporation.

Below are some of the report’s highlights:

  • Carnival Corporation is creating 10% less absolute greenhouse gas emissions than in 2011, despite increasing capacity by 30%.
  • 64% of the company’s ships can now connect to shore electricity while in port.
  • The company reduced food waste per person by 38% compared to 2019.
  • Carnival lowered absolute particulate matter emissions by 68% compared to 2015.
  • In comparison to 2018, the corporation reduced its fleet by around 500 million single-use goods.
  • 70 percent of the fleet currently has modern wastewater treatment technologies.
  • Carnival is boosting its efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The company’s new aim is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 20% by 2026, compared to 2019 levels.
