And the GREEN AWARD goes to cruise ship Celebrity Reflection

During a ceremony held on Wednesday the 12th of September, celebrating the joint stopover of two ships from the Celebrity Cruises company in Villefranche, the cruise ship Celebrity Reflection was awarded the Green Award 2017 by the French Riviera Cruise Club (FRCC).


This award was created in 2010 at the initiative of the FRCC and its partners to reward any cruise ship calling in at Alpes-Maritimes ports (Cannes, Antibes, Nice and Villefranche) for its sound approach to sustainable development.


The selection of the winner of the Green Award 2017 is based on “environmental audits” conducted by port management teams of CCI Nice Côte d’Azur (relying on quayside monitoring) of all ships calling in at least four times per year in one of the four ports.


The selected analysis criteria include noise, exhaust fumes, smells associated with the ship’s stopover, but also the transport of cruise passengers by tender and by bus, with the emphasis being placed on non-motorised mobility (bicycles, electric bicycles).


Taking into account quality of life and environmental aspects has always been at the heart of our approach as port managers hosting cruise stopovers.


Our approach is guided by an environmental and global approach to cruise operations, from the ship to the transport of passengers, including the stopover at the port.


Further information relating to the environmental commitment of the FRCC and the CCI Nice Côte d’Azur is provided in the document appended to this article.
