Save the Waves®
Founded in 1992 and expanded significantly since, Save The Waves® has evolved to address key environmental issues including air emissions, water and energy use, waste management, environmental training and education, and contributions to conservation.
Protecting the world's seas and the rich marine life they support is a way of life, and a way of doing business, for Azamara Club Cruises. This commitment is the foundation of Save the Waves®, our comprehensive environmental protection program established by our parent company in 1992.
Save the Waves® helps guide our company's operating philosophy. It has become an integral part of each crew member's job and is the backbone of daily operations. There are four key principles of Save The Waves®:
- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – Reduce the generation of waste material, reuse and recycle wherever possible, and properly dispose of remaining wastes.
- Practice Pollution Prevention – Nothing may be thrown overboard. Nothing.
- Go Above and Beyond Compliance (ABC) – means doing more than is required by regulations.
- Continuous Improvement – Change is the only constant; innovation is encouraged and rewarded.
