On 13th September, at Tuan Chau International Tourist Harbour, Quang Ninh Province in corporation with Japan International Cooperation Agency JICA awarded Green Sail Eco-label and logo for the first two cruise ships in Halong bay.

This is the activity under the project "Promoting Green Growth in Ha Long Bay" funded by JICA in the second phase.

Two cruise ships awarded with Green Sails are the Au Co QN - 8889 of Bhaya Ltd. and QN - 8298 of Bien Ngoc Ltd.

Ecological label Green Sail is an award granted to cruise ships that meet environmental and social responsibility standards, making effort to protect the environment, effectively use energy resources, and contribute to the preservation of the region's economy, culture and society in order to develop sustainable tourism.

In order to be certified as Green Sail, cruise ships must meet 29 criteria, including 15 mandatory criteria, nine incentive criteria, five advanced criteria, focus on sustainable operation on environment, preventing and minimizing noise pollution, air pollution, waste minimization, wastewater and biodiversity protection.

In the coming time, Quang Ninh province will continue to tighten state management of environmental protection in Ha Long Bay, putting the Green Sail on all cruise ships. The vessels that are not eligible for Green Sail will not be allowed to operate on Halong Bay, contributing to improving service quality, protecting the environment, and developing sustainable tourism.
