Environmental Responsibility

As a cruise operator in Vietnam's most iconic natural attraction, Bhaya Group understands the vital importance of environmental responsibility. The principles of sustainability are reflected in every process we undertake, from sourcing ingredients for our on-board cuisine to equipping our boats with high-standard waste treatment systems. We provide environmental awareness training for all staff members, and actively involve our team in a range of sustainability initiatives, including the Halong – Cat Ba Alliance and the Cleaning the Bay project.

Environmental Responsibility

Environmental Responsiblity by Bhaya Group

Bhaya Group regularly takes part in public awareness campaigns highlighting the importance of environmental conservation in Halong Bay, and locally organized initiatives around the issue, such as Clean the Bay 2012 and Action for Halong Bay 2013, both calling on public participation to remove garbage from the bay and raising public awareness of the effects of littering in the bay.

Another initiative we are proud to support is the Cat Ba Langur Conservation Project, which leads the vital effort to protect this critically endangered primate.

"Reduce, Re-use and Recycle” is a standard policy on-board our cruises, and all Bhaya Group crew members are trained to apply these principles.

After significant investment, well beyond regulatory requirements, in waste water treatment facilities for both grey water (from sinks and showers) and bilge water (a mix of water, oil, chemicals, and run off from the decks and engine), Bhaya Group fleets have minimised our environmental impact.
