MSC Cruises is ready to fight illegal wildlife trade
MSC Cruises recently signed the "Buenos Aires Declaration" which sets out a number of specific commitments for companies in the travel and tourism sector to help combat illegal wildlife trade.
This declaration aims to end the illegal carriage or sale of wildlife products, in full accordance with the terms of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wildlife, Fauna and Flora (CITES).
MSC Cruises has also become the first company to sign the WTTC’s Illegal Wildlife Travel & Tourism Sector Zero Tolerance Policy. This new policy fully commits the business to translate the principles of the Declaration into clear and measurable actions to protect wildlife and help in the prevention of illegal wildlife trafficking. The Company has taken another step forward in its commitment to ensure wildlife protection is integral to its environmental protection efforts.
