Sustainable Shipping and Cruise Lines
Friend of the Sea sustainable shipping standard aims to improve the sustainable use of marine resources by the shipping industry.

Since 90 percent of the world’s international trade travels by the sea and gas emissions from this industry account for 3 to 4 percent of global CO2 emissions, the environmental impact of shipping is considerable.

Friend of the Sea has developed a new certification project, with the aim of improving the sustainable use of the marine environment by the shipping industry.
