OUR COMMITMENTS

QUALITY / SAFETY / ENVIRONMENT

OUR PRIORITY: YOUR SAFETY

Our background as safety specialists onboard ships includes managing positions on land, gave us the

ability to be well prepared to any risks on land and afloat.

The safety of our passengers and our crew as well as the ship itself is our priority.

We have a strict risk prevention policy of all safety equipment.

We are continuously working to develop and improve safety culture onboard through regular training.

OUR ACTIONS FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

Polar zones are protected by international and local regulations mandatory for all shipping companies. All cruise companies must respect them.

We went and are going further!

We affirmed our commitment to guidelines regarding regulations for lower energy consumption, waste reduction, etc.

For example, we are:

Using low sulfur diesel
Sorting our waste

Our additional measures we decided to take are:

Optimize the routes we take to low our consumption
Optimize our engine speed / propeller pitch curve for lower fuel consumption
Reduce our energy consumption (LED lighting, frequency variators on electric motors, etc.)

Concerning our waste, we are limitating packaging from the start, using eco-labeled packaging and not throwing our waste to the sea

We reduce our waste production using economic and biodegradable packaged products

To respect flora and fauna of these remote regions, we :

Use new generation engines for zodiacs
Organize fuel-free activities (like pedalboat)

In addition, we created a booklet, searchable from each cabin on board, to heighten awareness of our passengers concerning protection of the planet.

We are also committed not to use foods from the WWF Red List.

HOW WE PUT THE HUMAN BEING

With the French motto « liberty, equality, fraternity » at heart, we have a non-discriminating policy on all fronts and promote diversity onboard as well as on land, both for passengers and crew. All equal, all different, all welcome!
