*Carnival classifies itself as a hospitality and leisure company, rather than a transport provider. As such, the company is featured in the “non-carbon-intensive” sector despite its relatively high emissions compared to some of its industry peers. The CDLI methodology states that a company’s classification as carbon-intensive or non-carbon-intensive is based solely on that company’s self-identified industry grouping, rather than on actual company emissions.
