Our Commitment to Health, Safety, Security and Reliability
Our Health, Environmental, Safety and Security Policy describes our commitments to:
- Protecting the health, safety and security of our passengers, guests, employees and all others working on behalf of the Company, thereby promoting an organization that always strives to be free of injuries, illness and loss.
- Protecting the environment, including the marine environment in which our vessels sail and the communities in which we operate, and always striving to prevent adverse environmental consequences and use resources efficiently and sustainably.
- Complying with or exceeding all legal and statutory requirements related to health, environment, safety, security and sustainability throughout our business activities.
- Assigning health, environment, safety, security and sustainability matters the same priority as other critical business matters.
The Boards of Directors of Carnival Corporation and Carnival plc have established a Board-level Health, Environmental, Safety & Security ("HESS") Committee to assist the Board in fulfilling their responsibility to supervise and monitor HESS policies, programs, initiatives at sea and onshore, and compliance with HESS legal and regulatory requirements.
Carnival’s Corporate Maritime Policy Department, headed by a Senior Vice President, with a full-time professional and administrative staff, is responsible for providing a common, integrated approach to management of HESS matters, and for reporting to the HESS Committee on such matters. This includes developing fleetwide standards for safe ship operations, assessing and managing maritime risks, and overseeing corporate HESS and sustainability programs.
