THE FRCC ORGANISED AN ENVIRONMENTAL VISIT ON BOARD ‘NORWEGIAN EPIC’ CRUISE SHIP IN CANNES ON 21st Oct.

Wednesday, 02 Novembre 2016

This visit allowed local stakeholders (institutions, associations, professionals) to look behind the scenes on cruise ships, with regards to environmental matters.

The participants were able to visit the vessel installations that limit environmental impact in the following areas : air quality, noise, waste management and preservation of the marine environment.

As part of its work the FRCC runs an environmental commission with several objectives :

•    Cruise lines, agents : to encourage them to develop a concept of responsible cruising on the  French Riviera (ranging from the vessel to excursions)
•    Cruise passengers : to offer them local and eco-responsible tourist products (group excursions, individual visits)
•    Local residents, associations : to become acquainted with the cruise industry

These information and environmental education campaigns, concerning the cruise sector in the region, are essential to ensure it functions well. The FRCC was given the Seatrade Insider Cruise Award for all its activities in this area.
