Environmental Sustainability

As a cruise vessel on the beautiful Swan River, the Crystal Swan respects and understands environmental sustainability. With the goal in mind to reduce our carbon footprint, we have put in place the following strategies:

MEASURE

REDUCE

OFFSET

To understand our footprint first we must measure our energy, water and fuel usage.
Copies of our accounts in these areas have been accessed to determine our starting points.
In the past twelve months we have reduced:
water usage by 5%
diesel usage by 6%
landfill waste by 50%

A dedicated effort to reduce these inputs is now in place. 
Skippers – reduce fuel usage.
Chefs – Reduce water & waste.
Management – Encourage results.
Turn it off Campaign.
Adopt LED technology
Identify & fix water leaks.
Changing flow rates on equipment.
Replacement of inefficient engines.
Replacement of fridge door seals.

At our property in the south west of WA we have recently planted.
15 x Black Wattle Acacia’s.
10 x Paulownia*.
50 other native shrubs & bushes.
The directors of Crystal Swan Cruises believe in protecting our environment and by planting the above native trees, shrubs and bushes will restore some of our carbon footprint.
These efforts are ongoing with further planting planned.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*Cultivated primarily for its fine, light and valuable timber, Paulownia can also be used for biomass, carbon sequestration, pruned to supply nutritious fodder to livestock during dry times and is highly ornamental with masses of sweetly scented trumpet-shaped flowers in spring.

  • Hi Patsy,

    Ensure all the Staff and Peter receives my sincere thanks. We have been discussing and think it’s the best Christmas Party we have had in 10 years, and we know how to party!

    Staff were great and gave it a nice relaxing feeling. Everyone had a blast.

    Cheers

  • I held a corporate dinner event on the Crystal Swan in late Oct 2017 and can say the event far exceeded our expectations. From the planning stages, through to set-up and finally service/catering at the event - we were impressed! The staff and crew are wonderful, the food is not your typical "boat" food (so don't be afraid!) and the boat itself is really quite unique and allows fantastic views to the city and surrounds. I would book with Crystal Swan again and recommend them as a venue option no questions asked. Thanks again Patty, Tam, Peter, Skipper & crew!
