Shipping A strategy aimed at reducing carbon emissions by 50%
Thus, over the years, the Group has developed several innovations (fleet and engine optimization, creation of Fleet Centers, etc.), which led to an improvement of its carbon efficiency by 50% between 2005 and 2015 and by 10% in 2017.
The Group has also set itself a new ambitious goal of improving its carbon efficiency by 30% 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 (twenty-foot equivalent units) powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG).
The result of several years of research conducted within the Group, the choice of LNG will enable:
- 99% less sulphur emissions
- 99% less fine particles
- 85% less nitrogen oxides emissions
- up to 25% less CO2. ■
