A Move Towards More Sustainable Shore Excursions

Intercruises’ Sustainability Management System is a fully scalable, digital solution designed to assess both shore offering and suppliers worldwide, ensuring they meet criteria outlined by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC).

With its recent GSTC certification, this initiative will enable cruise lines to offer thousands of certified, sustainable shore excursions to their cruise guests, enhancing the customer experience by helping them to make more sustainable choices, as we move towards an ever-more environmentally friendly future.

“The aim of our sustainable management system was not only to improve our own sustainable and environmental performance but also to support cruise lines and our suppliers, in achieving their own sustainability goals. Having greater control within the contracting chain and offering more sustainable shorex has a positive social and environmental impact on communities and the destinations in which we operate, helping to improve the sustainable and environmental performance of the industry.”
