Peace Boat - Ecoship Project
Peace Boat is Japan's largest cruise organization and carries out around-the-world voyages for peace and sustainability. We are now engaged in creating the world’s greenest cruise ship by 2020, Ecoship.
Ecoship will be the platform for Peace Boat’s round-the-world educational voyages carrying 6,000 people per year; host exhibitions on green technology in up to 100 ports per year; and serve as a floating sustainability laboratory contributing to research on the ocean, climate and green marine technology.
As a committed campaigner for the Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs), Ecoship's radical energy efficiency, maximized use of renewable energy, including solar-paneled sails, will enable a 40% reduction in CO2 emissions. Ecoship will be a catalyst for change towards low-carbon cruise shipping.
