AIDA Cruises investing in sustainable cruise market as part of the Green Cruising Strategy

AIDA Cruises has been investing in a future-proof/sustainable cruise market as part of the line's Green Cruising Strategy.

As part of the comprehensive commitment of AIDA, it is continuously advancing climate/resource protection with initiatives not only onboard its fleet, but also on land, at its headquarters in Rostock-Warnemunde (Germany), and at the Hamburg site.

Using reusable instead of disposable packaging/avoiding packaging altogether has been the practice for years, not only onboard all AIDA liners. With the reopening of the employee restaurant following the COVID-related break, for example, 2 sustainable deposit systems have been introduced for the takeaway offer with Rewbowl and Recup.

For healthy and relaxing breaks, the company provides its staff with fruit without packaging. Coffee specialties are offered freshly ground from coffee machines. Table water is drawn from water stations in the tea kitchens.

Due to further digitization, the number of the company's central printing stations is being reduced, empty toner cartridges are recycled via the supplier. If printing is still required, then it is done on 100% recycled paper certified with the Blue Angel.

For more sustainable mobility, for example, during leisure time, AIDA offers its employees discounted job tickets via cooperation with regional transport companies.

The line's mobility offer is supplemented by company bicycles, rented privately free of charge. AIDA Cruises makes a point of using rail as a preferred mode of transport for business trips within Germany.

All office buildings of AIDA in Hamburg and Rostock have been supplied with 100% electricity from renewable sources.
