Carnival Corporation & plc, the world’s leading cruise company, has made significant progress towards its emissions reduction goals. The company is on track to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions intensity by 18% by 2024 compared to 2019, putting it just two percentage points away from its original 2030 target. By the end of this year, Carnival expects its emissions intensity to have declined by 42% since 2008, potentially exceeding the 2030 reduction timeline set by the International Maritime Organization.

In pursuit of these reductions, Carnival has focused on two primary strategies. One approach is to reduce fuel consumption, which in turn reduces greenhouse gas emissions. The company has implemented several fuel-saving and energy-efficient innovations, from upgrading its fleet with advanced technology systems to developing energy-saving routes and using shore-based power options in port. Carnival is also exploring ways to reduce emissions from the fuel it already uses and is leading the industry in exploring new technologies, including LNG ships and advanced fuel technologies such as lithium-ion battery storage systems.

Looking ahead, Carnival Corporation aims for net-zero emissions from its ship operations by 2050, demonstrating its commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility in the cruise industry.
