CroisiEurope, Europe’s largest river cruise company, maintains its commitment to nature through concrete actions on its facilities and ships.

After conclusive tests carried out by the company on the Seine and Rhine, in partnership with AS Energy, CroisiEurope boats adopted GTL, a fuel made from natural gas and more ecological than diesel. The energy transition is underway on the Seine and will soon be extended to other rivers. Over the years, CroisiEurope has carried out other actions with a focus on the environment, namely: Installation of water savers on all its ships, which allows for a 35% reduction in the consumption of potable water and, consequently, reduces the production of wastewater. Installation of drinking fountains on board, which filter water from the public network and transform it into quality drinking water, saving almost 30 tons of plastic per year. Installation of wastewater assessment systems on all its ships, which are emptied during stopovers at treatment plants or urban sewers. Installation of a sewage collector at the CroisiEurope river station with a direct connection to the city’s sewage system. When the ports are equipped, their ships are connected to the electrical connection terminals (Power Lock Installation) and in the case of its own jetties, CroisiEurope finances these new installations. In addition, most of the company’s ships have low-consumption electrical installations. In winter, CroisiEurope ships dock at a river port equipped with electrical socket terminals that allow for electrical supply, thus reducing noise and pollution. In Paris, the company’s tours are carried out in electric buses, quieter and less polluting, for the well-being of all. CroisiEurope boats have “Greenship label” engines that comply with the strictest European standards in combating pollution and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The new technology used on board makes it possible to limit fuel consumption during navigation. Ventilation in the machine rooms is isolated, which reduces noise pollution. All waste is separated and compacted on board before being recycled. Engine oil is collected and processed by port specialists. All maintenance products used are biodegradable and environmentally friendly. The paint used for exteriors does not contain polluting components. The company has gradually replaced plastic straws with biodegradable cardboard ones. In the future, plastic cups will also be replaced. To replace bath towels, make your customers aware of ecology through written and oral messages. CroisiEurope is associated with Imrpim’Vert, an entity that respects ecological printing criteria and all company documentation is printed with vegetable inks and on bleached paper.
