Protecting Our EnvironmentSustainability Efforts

EnvironmentalOfficers & Crewmembers


Every ship sails with an Environmental Officer (EO) whose job includes the implementation, training, oversight and verification of shipboard environmental compliance, in addition to providing shoreside assistance for developing environmental policies and procedures. The EO is also available on board to answer guests' environmental questions, provide hands-on crew trainings and help ensure crew stay on course with the ISO 14001 programme.

Prior to assuming their shipboard duties, all crew members learn the basic requirements for ensuring environmental compliance through our Environmental Familiarization Training. Each crew member also receives specialised environmental training that is appropriate to their individual job and responsibilities.
