CMA CGM’s CEO, Rodolphe Saadé announced that the company plans to have its energy supplies include 10% alternative fuels by 2023. He also informed that it plans to be carbon neutral by 2050.
Speaking at the UN Global Compact, Rodolphe Saadé recalled the CMA CGM Group commitment for a more balanced globalization, which contributes to economic and social development, whilst respecting humanity and protecting the planet.
He made two major announcements:
- CMA CGM’s energy supplies will include 10% alternative fuels by 2023;
- CMA CGM’s 2050 objective is to be Carbon Neutral.
This is a new step for our Group, which is on track to reduce by 40% its CO2 emissions per tonne transported per km by 2030, a target set by the International Maritime Organization (IMO)
During 2019, CMA CGM reduced its total CO2 emissions by 6%. These reductions were made possible due to technological innovations implemented and an improved management of vessels operations.
In 2020, the company will also launchthe new 23,000 TEU LNG-powered vessels. These vessels will have reduced greenhouse gas emissions by about 20%, while they will suppress almost all sulphur and fine particle emissions.
