Sustainable Development

The United Nations 2030 Agenda and the associated Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have put center stage once more social issues and the role of enterprise. For Costa, the SDGs constitute an important, ongoing opportunity to review its strategies with regard to sustainability issues, with the aim of identifying potential areas of improvement and taking advantage of the opportunities for long-term development. This approach entails a step change in relations with external stakeholders, focusing on innovation and doing business according to transparent governance models. Based on this logic, we have carried out in-depth analysis of the actions taken to date as well as the Company’s future commitments, classifying them in terms of their materiality according to three key dimensions for development of the business: 1) operational risk 2) license-to-operate 3) innovation and growth – and establishing the areas of priority.

 

The Sustainability Plan is Costa Cruises’ roadmap to sustainable development and sets out priority areas and long term vision. Aligning our areas of intervention and engagement with the Sustainable Development Goals increases the consistency of then Company’s strategic choices and keeps the focus firmly on the objectives of the 2030 Agenda.
