Ecological Cruise Charter 2020: Bordeaux and Bordeaux Port committed to a sustainable future

Ecological Cruise Charter 2020: Bordeaux and Bordeaux Port committed to a sustainable future

non-classe

The City of Bordeaux- in conjunction with the local urban, port and pilotage authorities and with the support of the federation of local cruise companies, Cruise Bordeaux- are committed to the conservation of the Gironde Estuary and its ecosystem, as well as that of the section of the Garonne that runs through the city centre.

Signed this Monday, on 9th December 2019, this charter for good environmental practice cements the desire on the signatories’ part to establish guidelines for the cruise industry’s future development.

Every year, Bordeaux’s left bank attracts between 40 and 50 cruise ships of between 80 and 950 passengers that stay for 1 or 2 nights. Sustainable cruises have played a significant role in the recent economic boom in both the city and the region as a whole. In order to ensure that Bordeaux remains such an attractive destination, the charter’s signatories come together as partners in this development with the aim of ensuring that each operator voluntarily and ethically works towards the following measures:

> Commitment n°1: Reduce polluting emissions in the air

> Commitment n°2: Eliminate polluting waste in the Estuary

> Commitment n°3: Establish a generalised environmental process

> Commitment n°4: To optimise access to the quays of Bordeaux city centre and the modalities for taking the Chaban-Delmas Bridge.

> Commitment n°5: Limit noise impact when docked

> Commitment n°6: Work in conjunction with local pilotage (Le Pilotage de la Gironde) and optimise sailing procedures
