Carnival Corp on track for food waste reduction goal

Wednesday, 11 Dec, 2023 0

Carnival Corporation & plc has announced achieving a 38% reduction in food waste per passenger relative to its 2019 baseline.

This is edging closer to its interim target to reduce food waste by 40% per person by 2025.

The goal is to reach a 50% reduction by 2030.

It is less than a year since it surpassed the previous 30% food waste reduction goal announced in its 2022 Sustainability Report.

To achieve these goals, Carnival Corp has taken measures onboard its ships to minimize unused food across all food preparation and dining services.

The company has invested in advanced waste management tech such as biodigesters to naturally break down and dispose of unused food.

“It’s a virtuous cycle from start to finish that reduces our environmental footprint,” said Bill Burke, chief maritime officer.

Carnival Corp has put in place several practical initiatives designed to creatively cut food loss while continuing to deliver dining experiences.

It monitors guest dining trends using methods like AI technology.

Many of the company’s brands have also implemented onboard awareness campaigns to educate both guests and crew on doing their part to help reduce food waste.

Costa Cruises works with a network of registered food banks in communities it visits to deliver surplus ingredients and meals to people in need.

The company has over 600 food waste biodigesters installed across its fleet, which house naturally occurring bacteria that enable the ships to organically break down and liquify 80% of uneaten food.

The company’s current Sustainability Report highlights its progress against all its 2030 sustainability goals.
