The Baltic Sea is a global hotspot for the cruise industry. Hundreds of cruise vessels, with thousands of port calls, carrying millions of guests all impact our area. However, the world is changing and the demand for sustainable tourism is growing. We will keep attracting cruise guests while simultaneously transforming the Baltic Sea into the most sustainable cruise destination in the world.

Find more information below on our sustainable initiatives, including our Sustainable Cruise Indicator tool where you can measure how sustainable your cruise region is!

Tool: How sustainable is your cruise region?

Cruise Baltic and leading consulting group COWI have joined forces to develop four indicators for sustainability in the cruise industry.

The new tool is an easy and concrete way to evaluate sustainability in a particular cruise region, and it can help regions to become more aware of where and how they can become more sustainable.

Cruise Baltic wants to encourage all cruise regions in the world to be as sustainable as possible and this tool is a step in the right direction in order to make concrete changes.

Access the tool here, to measure sustainability in your region in just a few minutes!
