Virgin Voyages partners with sustainable marine fuel suppliers

Thursday, Sep 22, 2022 0

Virgin Voyages has partnered with independent sustainability experts, the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB), along with three leading waste-based sustainable fuel providers.

Argent Energy, GoodFuels and Twelve are collaborating with the cruise line to advance a commitment of reaching net zero by 2050.

Following months of research, Virgin Voyages established partnerships and plans to build a portfolio approach to sustainable marine fuel (SMF) supply.

Virgin Voyages will enter into long-term agreements for sustainable marine fuels with these providers, which includes plans to add others over time.

“In order to significantly reduce our carbon footprint further, we must transition to lower-carbon fuel sources as soon as possible,” said Tom McAlpin, CEO of Virgin Voyages.

“We could do this today if more sustainable ‘drop-in’ fuels were available in our ports of call. We want to work with partners to pioneer for the essential change,

“I am thrilled to welcome Virgin Voyages to the RSB membership. I know we will be able to create a significant impact in driving change towards sustainable marine fuels,” said Elena Schmidt, Executive Director of RSB.
