Charter on Sustainable Cruising in the French Mediterranean
The management of maritime activities in the Mediterranean is essential to finding a balance between the economic development of the territories and the protection of the environment and marine biodiversity.
Cruise lines are often leaders in terms of innovation: advanced wastewater treatment on board, electrical connection to the quay, use of alternative fuel (LNG), management of complex logistics to satisfy thousands of passengers, etc. The sector is a driving force in improving environmental practices. They make the most of their exposure to the general public to lead the way in sustainable development at sea.
By signing up to the current charter, cruise lines are pursuing their commitments to protect the marine environment, improve air quality and mitigate climate change.
This charter is intended to confirm, or even unify, the various local charter initiatives carried out by local authorities and port managers.
