Costa Cruises achieved significant recycling and sustainability benchmarks in 2016
According to the newly released 2016 sustainability report, Costa Cruises, an Italian cruise line, based in Genoa, Italy reduced waste by 9.5% per passenger day and cut its carbon footprint by 5% from 2015 to 2016. Fuel consumption per passenger also dropped 3%.
The report says Costa Cruise sorted 100% of waste on board and reported the collection of about 393 tons of aluminium over the last 10 years, which were later sent for recycling.
'The roadmap we created three years ago places sustainability at the center of an integrated and multi-stakeholder approach,' said Stefania Lallai, sustainability and external relations director, Costa Cruises. This, according to her, led to a series of successful conservation and recycling projects on board.
Costa also has been working towards waste reduction and promoting recycling and the recovery of materials from end-of-life products. It was their collaboration with CiAL (the Aluminium Packaging Consortium) which helped the successful recycling of 393 tons of aluminium so far.
They have also actively promoted the 'Message in a Can' project, which increased the collection of aluminium in the Municipality of Savona by 27%.
A study carried out by PwC in Savona, Costa's main homeport, revealed that the company's economic contribution to the city's GDP stood at €38m per year. The company also created 681 jobs in the city.Get fresh Aluminium data and insights
