MSC Meraviglia crowned with Bureau Veritas’ 8 Golden Pearls
MSC Cruises is the first cruise line to receive Bureau Veritas’ “8 Golden Pearls” notation for sustainable and environmental stewardship, which covers quality, health, safety, and environmental (QHSE) management on board the MSC Meraviglia.
The notation recognizes MSC Cruises’ efforts in eight domains of protection. Specific examples cited are the ship’s exhaust-gas cleaning system and its advanced waste-water treatment system, featuring a two-day holding capacity and non-discharge operation. It also recognizes the MSC Meraviglia’s ISO 50001 certification for efficient energy management and its OHSAS 18001 certification, which recognizes efforts in establishing a comprehensive occupational health and safety management system.
MSC Meraviglia also meets the ISO 22000 standard for food safety across the entire food supply and preparation chain, has earned the ISO 14001 for environmental management systems, and has achieved the Bureau Veritas’ “CLEANSHIP” notation.
