first_imgWith a promise to become single-use plastic free by 2022 – having already removed all plastic straws, water bottles and related single-use items from its ships – Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection celebrates the fifth anniversary of its innovative sustainable river cruising guide. Parent company, The Travel Corporation, is also committed to the banning of many single-use plastic items at its 40 offices worldwide and will phase them out across all operations by 2022. Written in connection with The Travel Foundation, a sustainable tourism charity, and with support from their not-for-profit foundation, TreadRight, the guide, according to Uniworld President and CEO Ellen Bettridge, was designed to support the river cruise tourism industry as it looked toward a sustainable future and continues to influence the brand as it pursues its place as the most sustainable line on the rivers today. “Five years ago, we set out to lead the industry with recommended best practices from energy and solid waste to water and environmental management systems. We shared this information with the entire river cruise community because as they say, a rising tide lifts all the boats and we knew it was imperative to work collectively as we set out to approach this global problem,” said Bettridge. “Today, we recognise and celebrate our efforts to make a difference with quantifiable successes because you cannot manage what you don’t measure.”IMAGE: Budapest Uniworld plastic river cruisessustainable tourismThe Travel CorporationUniworldlast_img
