Costa has received a major international accolade for its project tackling food wastage on board the Company’s ships. Costa was among the winners at the third edition of the Business Performance Awards, staged by business performance experts Ayming to honor outstanding companies that have implemented exceptionally innovative transformation projects that create economic, social and human value while stimulating new ways of thinking and acting, in a constantly evolving European context.

The authoritative international jury chose Costa on account of its 4GOODFOOD program, which laid down a marker for the cruise industry by setting the highly ambitious and challenging objective of halving food waste across the fleet by 2020, some 10 years ahead of the UN’s 2030 Agenda target.

This year’s edition of the annual event was held in Paris on May 23. Costa’s prize was collected by Sustainability and External Relations Director Stefania Lallai and President Costa Croisières France Georges Azouze. The ceremony – which saw other awards going to AIR France - KLM, G7, Korian and Novamont – also provided the opportunity to organize a wide-ranging discussion about the future of Europe. A future based on responsible innovation, in which Costa intends to be a leading player.
