In everything we do, Celebrity Cruises is ever conscious of our special responsibility to protect our marine ecosystems. Protecting the world's seas and the rich marine life they support is a way of life, and a way of doing business, for Celebrity Cruises. This commitment is the foundation of Save the Waves, our comprehensive environmental protection program established by our parent company in 1992.
Save the Waves helps guide our company's operating philosophy. It has become an integral part of each crewmember's job and is the backbone of daily operations. There are four key principles of Save The Waves:
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - Reduce the generation of waste material, reuse and recycle wherever possible, and properly dispose of remaining wastes. Practice Pollution Prevention - Nothing may be thrown overboard. Nothing. Go Above and Beyond Compliance (ABC) - Means doing more than is required by regulations. Continuous Improvement - Change is the only constant; innovation is encouraged and rewarded.
Our environmental stewardship department ensures that Save The Waves continues to be improved and fully implemented on our ships and at our land-based offices. We invite you to read more about our environmental stewardship efforts below.
