MSC awarded with 2019 ‘Greenest Shipowner of the Year’ Neptune Award

The global maritime industry has recognised MSC Cruises’ long-standing sustainability efforts with the 2019 ‘Greenest Shipowner of the Year’ Neptune Award.

The accolade was presented at the Global Sustainable Shipping and Ports Forum in Copenhagen, Denmark. The award is given every year to a shipping company that has shown excellence in reducing the environmental impact of its fleet’s day-to-day operation by deploying cutting-edge technologies and practices, driving the maritime sector’s journey towards a sustainable future.

Pierfrancesco Vago, MSC Cruises’ Executive Chairman, commented, “I am particularly pleased that peers from across the overall shipping industry have recognised our long-standing and ongoing commitment to protect the environment in which we operate, with particular attention for the communities of the port cities that our ships call globally. Ours has been – and will continue to be – a facts-based journey of continuous improvement, focusing on minimising and continuously reducing the environmental footprint of our operations – both at sea and while ashore. From emissions reduction to energy efficiency, waste and wastewater management, we are equipping as well as retrofitting our entire fleet with some of the latest solutions available in the market, all of which while pushing for the development – and investing in – ever more advanced technologies.
