The New Zealand Cruise Association (NZCA) has collaborated with Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA)
and the Australian Cruise Association (ACA) to release the first Cruise Industry Sustainability Guide in the region.

‘The cruise industry has become an important part of our tourism economy in New Zealand,’ says Kevin O’Sullivan,
chief executive of the New Zealand Cruise Association. ‘The guide provides a succinct overview of the considerable
work that the cruise industry does to preserve our environment both locally and internationally.’

Although cruise ships represent less  than 1% of the global shipping fleet, the sector aims to showcase the work being
done by the industry to preserve the world’s waterways. The initiatives in the Sustainability Guide fall broadly into five categories:

1. Cleaner Fuel and Reduced Emissions
2. Recycle, Reduce and Reuse
3. Waste Management Practices
4. Destination Sustainability
5. Working Together

The guide will be distributed to the members of each organisation, who in turn are being encouraged to send
this out to their broader communities, to increase awareness of the being done by the cruise industry as a
collaborative effort.
