NASSAU CRUISE PORT SELECTED AS SUSTAINABILITY INITIATIVE AWARD FINALIST BY SEATRADE CRUISE
17.08.2022 NASSAU CRUISE PORT SELECTED AS SUSTAINABILITY INITIATIVE AWARD FINALIST BY SEATRADE CRUISE

On August 5, Seatrade Cruise announced that Nassau Cruise Port is a finalist in the Sustainability Initiative of the Year category for the Nassau Cruise Port Redevelopment Project. The $300 million marine and upland transformation includes several substantial eco-friendly elements including production of 1 MW of solar power to support local power provider distribution, full facility LED lighting, low water usage plans, full facility recycling plans, and incorporation of new green space into the downtown core.

In early July, NCP launched its environmental sustainability program under the theme, “It’s in Our Hands,” to establish and promote its commitment to environmental protection and awareness. The program was launched through the announcement of a month-long environmental awareness photo contest for Bahamians and residents aged 7 to 18. Four winners (one per week) received four passes each to Baha Bay Water Park to spend time outdoors with family and friends. We also placed a donation box in the NCP terminal building to encourage passengers to make a monetary donate to local environmental NGO programs.

More recently, we purchased a 25-foot boat to help us remove garbage from the harbour and to address any other environmental concerns.

NCP is one of three finalists for this award. The winner will be announced on September 14 at Seatrade Cruise Med in Malaga, Spain.
