AECO – Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators
AECO is dedicated to managing respectable, environmentally friendly and safe expedition cruising in the Arctic. As a member, Silversea agrees that its expedition cruises and tourism must be carried out with the utmost consideration for the fragile, natural environment, local cultures and cultural remains, as well as the challenging safety hazards at sea and on land. All visitors, staff or crew from AECO members’ ships must act in accordance with legal regulations as well as the AECO Guidelines. The Guidelines have been developed with considerable input from the Governor of Svalbard, The Norwegian Polar Institute, WWF’s Arctic Program Office, as well as Greenland Tourism, Greenland Directorate of Environment and Nature and others.
