Our Strategy

Our Strategy and Approach

Our global sustainability program, Sail & Sustain, is centered around our commitment to drive a positive impact on society and the environment while delivering on our vision to be the vacation of choice for everyone around the world. We visit approximately 700 destinations globally, allowing our guests to travel and explore the world, and our business is inextricably linked to the preservation of our planet and the protection of our shared resources.     

Our environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy is focused on five pillars and was developed through cross-functional collaboration with key internal and external stakeholders. As we continue our ESG journey, we look forward to building upon this foundation and meaningfully contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as we collectively chart a path towards a more sustainable future.

Materiality Assessment and Matrix

The ESG materiality assessment outlines the most important topics for both our Company and our stakeholders. In 2021, we conducted a comprehensive materiality assessment to ensure we were aligning our ESG program with the most material topics for our key stakeholders. Through interviews and a survey, we engaged internal and external stakeholders to help prioritize the most material ESG topics. We then conducted a workshop with our Sail & Sustain Executive Leadership Council to discuss and validate the findings. We have and will continue to use these findings to inform our ESG strategy and reporting going forward.
