To mark World Environment Day and World Ocean Day, Virgin Voyages is sharing its first brand impact report:

It documents how the line plans to deliver a positive difference for people and the planet.

The first impact report highlights Virgin Voyages’ environmental, social and governance goals as the company expands its fleet and global operations.

It covers five key areas, taking commitments to social and environmental responsibility seriously.

“From ethically sourced F&B ingredients to reusable items and reef-safe sunscreens, our team has worked hard to integrate sustainable practices into the offering onboard,” said Jill Stoneberg, Senior Director of Sustainability and Social Impact

Virgin Voyages says more than 25% of its retail partners have made a commitment to driving positive social or environmental impact.

Other highlights from the impact report include the diversity of Virgin Voyages’ crew, which represent 95 different nationalities.

Crew donated more than 500 volunteer hours in 2021 to give back to local communities.

“Climate change is one of the biggest threats facing our ocean, but we’re proud to have one of the most efficient fleets at sea,” said Tom McAlpin, CEO of Virgin Voyages.
