Corsica Ferries and the environment

golfe de Porto

In Corsica and Sardinia you can find extremely beautiful and well protected natural reserves. Due to the quality and diversity of the landscapes both islands are one of the last nature reserves in Europe.
Corsica Ferries actively participates in the protection of the environment with its own resources-


Our activities


The employees of Corsica Ferries endeavor to care for the nature.
The basic principles of environmental protection are respected in the offices and on the ships. We take care of all material, i.e. there are no plastic bags to be used in the boutiques on board. Recycled paper is used in our offices. Also our brochures and information material are printed on recycled paper.
Due to economic and ecological reasons Corsica Ferries takes consciously care of the fuel consumption of the ships which is reduced as far as possible. Corsica Ferries is member of the Association of French Ship-owners and supports the fulfillment of the so-called Blue Charta of the French Ship-owners obliging to protect the waters and coastal region.

Our support


For 15 years the company has supported scientific research centers dealing with ecological and biological issues. I.e. scientists can go on board the ships to study whales and other sea mammals.
- Among these centers are "Academia del Leviatano"
- C.R.A.B. (Centro Ricerche Ambientali e Biologiche Soc. Coo.).
Apart from that for many years we are one of the main partners of Festiventu - the festival of the wind. The festival takes place each year at the end of October in Calvi. The city then welcomes about 40.000 people from Corsica, France and other countries. The "Festiventu" is also an ecological festival, an event with numerous activities making the people sensitive to the relevance of our environment. Corsica Ferries also supports the "Petit Guide de I'Eko-Touriste", a guide book for environmentally aware tourists, published together with the Festival of the Wind.
