In mid November, Cruise Europe (CE) managing director Jens Skrede was delighted to be back on the International Cruise Summit stage in Madrid for the first time since the first event in 2011. He was co-moderator of a session, entitled ‘Tackling the sustainability concerns of ports & destinations’, with secretary general MedCruise Nicky Guerrero.
Linden Coppell, vp sustainability and ESG (environmental social governance), MSC Cruises, and Lucienne Damm, head of sustainability TUI Cruises, were on hand to discuss a range of topics from how TEN-T regulations might impact EU ports to the development and availability of future fuels, such as synthetic LNG, ammonia, nuclear and hydrogen, as well as sustainable shore excursions.
Skrede began by setting the scene in the Cruise Europe region where there are around 10 ports in four countries plug-in ready and several more are due to come on stream in 2024/25. “At CE we have also done things like publishing an OPS fact sheet and we have a dedicated website for OPS where the lines can check the status of member ports,” he said.
