Our Journey to Destination Net ZeroSM
A giant step in our sustainability journey, Destination Net Zero is our initiative to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. Here’s how we plan to do it.

Accelerating shore power
With our new shore power agreement at our Galveston, Texas, terminal, our ships can reduce emissions by “plugging in” to local electricity sources while at port. 20 of our ships were equipped to use shore power by the end of 2022 — including ships owned by our joint ventures — with additional retrofits on the way. All new builds will have shore power connections.Read More
