Hornblower Niagara Cruises has made a dedicated effort to reduce its environmental impact, which has paid off with a Gold certification from Sustainable Tourism 2030.
Previously certified with a silver recognition in 2017, Hornblower has been upgraded to gold with an ongoing commitment to reduce its footprint, boost recycling and composting and operate with sustainability at the forefront. This is underscored by Hornblower’s Respect Our Planet, a company-wide initiative committed to clean air, clean water and a clean future.
Our Hornblower team has worked hard to be more environmentally conscious in our operations,” says Mory DiMaurizio, vice-president and general manager of Hornblower Niagara Cruises. “From the clean-burning biodiesel engines in our twin catamarans, Niagara Thunder and Niagara Wonder, to recycling the red ponchos we use on our Voyage to the Falls and Falls Fireworks Cruise to installing best environmental practices across the entire business, while encouraging our guests to do the same.”
Sustainable Tourism 2030 is helping the global tourism industry make a difference and meet the growing traveller demand for responsible business. They do this by recognizing sustainability certifications and providing resources and support in areas of eco funding, carbon reduction and training,
