Sustainability collaboration with Cruise Association of New Zealand
Gilfillan, with ACA ceo Jill Abel and CLIA Australasia and Asia managing director Joel Katz, toasted the launch this month of the first Sustainability Guide, a joint effort that included the Cruise Association of New Zealand.
It highlights the lead Australasia is taking to preserve the world’s waterways, in many cases exceeding international standards.
To inform broader communities
The guide is being distributed to the members of CLIA, ACA and NZCA who, in turn, are being encouraged to let their broader communities know about the invaluable work being done by the cruise industry as a collaborative effort.
‘We are proud of our industry’s strong track record on environmental sustainability,’ Katz said.
Abel said ACA is committed to working with the cruise lines and the ports and destinations to develop viable short- and long-term solutions for ‘a sustainable and exciting future for our industry.’
