During the One Ocean Summit Rodolphe Saadé, Chairman and CEO of the CMA CGM Group, announced in a speech that the Group would no longer be transporting any plastic waste aboard its ships.
he decision will be effective from June 1, with Rodolphe Saadé also announcing that the Group will host one of the two sites of the French Institute for Decarbonation at Tangram, the Group’s major innovation and training center due to open in Marseille in 2023.
With the decision that it will no longer transport plastic waste on board its ships, CMA CGM will prevent this type of waste from being exported to destinations where sorting, recycling or recovery cannot be assured.
For this reason, the company has decided to take practical steps where it has the operational capability to do so, heeding the urgent calls made by certain NGOs.
With this decision, the CMA CGM Group is stepping up its efforts to make conserving biodiversity one of the priorities of its CSR policy and to develop trade that is more responsible and fair for everyone and for the planet.
