Our place in the world
In Costa Cruises we promote a business model oriented towards sustainable development and the creation of value. Our commitment goes beyond mere responsible management of resources; we are determined to make a tangible contribution to the conservation of resources for future generations. Since we operate in a business setting that is highly diversified and multicultural, we are committed to a balanced approach based on cultural inclusion and capitalizing on the diversity offered both by the local communities with which we interact and by our workforce.
The pursuit of innovative solutions linked to the development of new services must necessarily be based on the determination to implement actions and projects aimed at mitigating our impacts both on the local communities at our destinations and in the sea, i.e. the natural element in which we move. The conservation of the marine environment and its matchless wonders is our top priority.
Sea – Safeguarding the Environment
Contributing to the preservation of the environment in general and the marine environment in particular is one of our top priorities. This commitment is reflected by a series of specific actions and the constant pursuit of innovative environmental protection solutions. For us, planning sustainable growth means guaranteeing that future generations will continue to be able to enjoy all planet Earth’s natural beauty and benefit from its precious resources.
For Costa, respecting the environment is an integral and vital part of the roadmap to sustainable development. Our fleet expansion and longterm, structured growth go handin-hand with specific efforts to ensure responsible innovation while minimizing our environmental footprint by reducing emissions and optimizing consumption. Our vision focuses on helping mitigate climate change and on the protection of marine ecosystems.
You – Creating Value
We take many thousands of tourists to the finest destinations all over the world and show them splendid cultural attractions and natural scenery. We are well aware of the positive role played by Costa Cruises and our unique wealth of diversity enabling us to build solid relations with local organizations and to create economic and – above all – social value for local communities.
The Company is committed to active dialogue with stakeholders and to their ongoing engagement. This process involves: our Guests, who are shown a model of tourism based on the principles of respect and sustainable development, the local communities, who we interact with so as to capitalize on the value generated by tourism, our suppliers, direct beneficiaries of the economic impact generated by the Company, and Costa’s people, who deliver unique experiences.
Tomorrow – Innovating Responsibly
Cutting-edge R&D, innovation and a long-term vision for the complete integration of sustainability are the cornerstones of our approach. Our stakeholders expect tangible results and eco-sustainable solutions in all our fields of operation. We work with a great sense of responsibility and passion in order to create the ships of the future and deliver new travel experiences.
Costa has chosen to take part in a number of innovative sustainable development projects, designed and run jointly with the stakeholders directly involved in the Company’s key processes. Costa sees itself as a team player in a broad context producing long-term synergies implementing models and systems of reference that will have a positive impact with the proactive engagement of everyone sharing the same ideals.
- Costa foundation
Costa Crociere Foundation
For our Foundation, making a real difference means doing things differently. It means harnessing potential both within the organization and across the wider stakeholder network. It means maximizing the impact of each project by encouraging philanthropy among employees and partners, establishing lasting partnerships across society and taking advantage of as many non-monetary resources as possible.
Our strength lies in the broad spectrum of resources we have to draw on, from skilled employees on and offshore to a network of suppliers, business partners, public authorities, media contacts and travel agents. Added to this are the financial and material assets that Costa is willing to invest, and the participation of its stakeholders it is ready to encourage. By working together, we can make that difference.
