A pioneer in the field of sustainable tourism, PONANT is both setting an inspiring example and leading the way in the realm of environmental responsibility. We share these same values with a multitude of partner organisations committed to protecting the natural world, and our actions in favour of the environment are regularly rewarded and relayed at both a national level and internationally. Our ambition in this respect drives us to constantly increase our commitment and involvement to ensure awareness of these laudable practices spreads and to encourage their wider application.



Partners working alongside us


Having recognised the value of both our approach to sustainable tourism and our naturalist expertise, a number of prestigious partners committed to protecting the natural environment regularly join our teams on board our ships, amongst which NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC, GEO, the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco and Le Cercle Polaire. These collaborations result in unique onboard discussions and exchanges involving key figures passionately interested in the environment.
