The CMA CGM Group has welcomed the adoption, by
member countries of the IMO, of a strategy aimed at reducing carbon emissions
by 50 percent in 2050 in the maritime transport industry.
The CMA CGM
Group said in a press release that it is already strongly committed to the
protection of the environment and has implemented a proactive policy aimed at
significantly reducing its CO2 emissions. Thus, over the years, the group has
developed several innovations (fleet and engine optimisation, creation of Fleet
Centers, etc.), which led to an improvement of its carbon efficiency by 50
percent between 2005 and 2015 and by 10 percent in 2017.
has also set itself a new ambitious goal of improving its carbon efficiency by
30 percent between 2015 and 2025. As a group committed to the energy
transition, CMA CGM will be the first shipping group in the world to own in its
fleet, from 2020, giant ships of 22,000 TEUs powered by liquefied natural gas
(LNG). The result of several years of research conducted within the group, the
choice of LNG will enable 99 percent less sulphur emissions; 99 percent less
fine particles; 85 percent less nitrogen oxides emissions ; and up to 25
percent less CO2.
