MSC Cruises recognised for its green policies

Date Posted: 15 Jul 2008

MSC Cruises has been officially recognised for its efforts in promoting environmental issues.

Italian consortium Consorzio Nazionale per il Recupero e il Riciclo di Imballaggi in Alluminio (CiAl) praised the cruise line for its collection of recycled material.

Normally, the consortium pays homage to councils but this year MSC Cruises was among those to be commended - as a "floating council".

MSC Cruises collected 22,000 lbs of aluminium in the form of drink cans, foil and packaging between May and December 2007 which was later collected by CiAl in Genoa.

CiAl recycles this aluminium for use in household goods, furnishings and structures for houses and more.

The accolade is the latest in a line of commendations for MSC Cruises and its environmentally sustainable programmes.

The line was the first to adhere to the Venice Blue Flag agreement, an accord set up to reduce sulphur emissions from ships crossing the Venice waterways.
