They engaged Fulcrum to conduct a regional materiality analysis towards identifying how Costa’s global material issues related to Asia-Pacific. In particular, Costa wanted to understand the most impactful avenues to green their operations. 

Cruising is not known to be the greenest of industries. Yet, there are many technologies and innovations bringing things up to speed with sustainability best practices.
