Take the Clean Cruising Pledge
Join the coalition to clean up cruise ships
Carnival Corporation could choose to protect the Arctic, the climate, its passengers, and its employees by ditching the heavy fuel oil that currently powers most of the ships in its global fleet. Instead, it is doubling down on false solutions and half-steps.
Carnival may not be swayed by concerns of environmental degradation and toxic onboard air quality, but it will pay attention to consumer pressure. Carnival needs to understand that, until it becomes a clean cruising leader, it will lose out on thousands of potential customers – customers who care about the planet.
Dozens of countries are calling for a phase-out of heavy fuel oil in the Arctic. Indigenous leaders from across the Arctic have also called for a heavy fuel oil phaseout to protect their territorial waters upon which they depend for food and their traditional ways of life. If Carnival respects the will of those that have called the Arctic home for tens of thousands of years, it would be doing everything in its power to minimize its climate pollution, oil spill risk and improve onboard air quality. It could start now by switching to cleaner fuel.
Take the Clean Cruising Pledge today and let Carnival know that its actions will impact its bottom line.
