Even the orbiting international space station joined the annual symbolic switch-off in 2012. Earth Hour was conceived by WWF and Leo Burnett in 2007 in Sydney Australia. The event occurs annually in March and encourages households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour to raise awareness about the need to take action on climate change.

Captain Cook Cruises has a commitment to continually reduce our carbon footprint. Our initiatives include:  

  • Use of biofuels to reduce carbon emissions. Use of special low fume ultra low sulphur diesel (100 times less heavy metal emissions than standard diesel)
  • Glass recycling through innovative ‘Bottlecycler’ technology which reduces the quantity of waste by 500%
  • Jotun marine coating products are used extensively. Jotun innovative technology reduces the amount of biocides, bio-degradable chemicals in their products. Anti-foulings, which reduce fuel consumption & emissions, are used extensively
  • Preferred suppliers are those with independent sustainability policies within their individual organisations 

As part of Earth Hour we will be turning off all non-essential lighting at our shoreside offices. Due to safety regulations ship lights will remain on, however we will dim the interior lights between 8.30pm and 9.30pm.
