Sustainability In Design & Operations

Home » Sustainability In Design & Operations

Sustainability should be an integral part of the business plan; implementation of sustainability goals affects all parts of the business, and influences daily decision-making in sustainable cruise ship interiors design. This session will cover what that means in practice and how to build a sustainable supply chain in collaboration with all stakeholders. Panellists will examine how technological advances, alongside intelligent (and responsible) design can instigate innovation and help to minimise environmental impact.
