PONANT released its first annual sustainability report, presenting early results to sshape the way towards more sustainable and meaningful tourism.

Unveiled during the European Sustainable Development Week, the report showcases the objectives for PONANT, set itself with its Blue Horizon roadmap.

“We see ourselves as having a responsibility to our guests, our employees and local communities to promote meaningful voyages,” says Hervé Gastinel, CEO.

“We aim to decarbonise our cruises, reduce atmospheric emissions, eliminate plastics, recover waste, protect biodiversity, support scientific research aboard our ships, and strengthen our partnerships with local communities.”

PONANT’s roadmap is aligned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals:

90% of the company’s R&D is focused on improving their ships technical and environmental performance, the aim being to minimise emissions into the air and water. Managing water is another area in progress, with drinking water production, recycling, and biological waste treatment systems designed to avoid chemicals.

On board, 100% of waste is separated and sorted, with 60% of it being recycled compared to the global average of barely 20%. By 2026, this recovery rate will be up to 80% in conjunction with specialised channels ashore.

All vessels in the PONANT fleet have earned the international Cleanship certification issued by Bureau Veritas, attesting to the ships’ optimal ecological performance.

Last February, the company also made six founding commitments to the environment including reducing CO2 emissions by 15% by 2026 and 30% by 2030 and completely eliminate single use plastics aboard and ashore from 2022;
