TUI Cruises wins “CruiseCopenhagen Sustainability Award 2019”
CruiseCopenhagen is pleased to announce that TUI Cruises has won the annual “CruiseCopenhagen Sustainability Award” for its efforts to develop a sustainable cruise industry and for working towards reducing its environmental impact in Copenhagen.
“What great news for us. It is a great tribute to our environmental every-day-work on board and shoreside. We strongly believe in our “above & beyond strategy” – especially when it comes to our solid waste management and wastewater policy. We are very happy that CruiseCopenhagen acknowledges it with this prestigious prize. It is a great motivation for TUI Cruises to continue the path we have chosen,” says TUI Cruises GmbH Senior Environmental Manager, Lucienne Damm, who received the award on behalf of TUI Cruises.
Developed by CruiseCopenhagen’s more than 60 partners, the award recognises and celebrates initiatives that contribute to a more sustainable cruise industry in Denmark.
“Our vision in CruiseCopenhagen is to develop a cruise industry in Denmark that pays particular attention to the environment in all its facets – for the benefit of the industry, its guests and its hosts,” says CruiseCopenhagen Director, Claus Bødker.
While CruiseCopenhagen partners applaud all cruise lines for their sustainability efforts, TUI Cruises was highlighted by many partners for walking the extra mile this year.
“There is no doubt that TUI Cruises takes its responsibility seriously. With exceptional waste management and an advanced treatment system, TUI has made a great effort when it comes to port operations in Copenhagen. As far as shore excursion goes, TUI has shown excellence in offering a wide array of environmentally friendly tours with focus on spreading out its guests to areas outside of the city center,” Claus Bødker says.
CruiseCopenhagen Sustainability Award: The CruiseCopenhagen Sustainability Award is presented each year to a cruise line that has shown excellence in supporting a sustainable cruise industry in Denmark.
