On November 27, during the award ceremony held at the Maritime2020 Summit in Singapore, CMA CGM has been named the ‘Most Accomplished Asia Pacific Ship Owner’ of 2018.
The award has been bestowed on the shipowner for demonstrating greatest efforts to make its fleet more sustainable, efficient and environmentally friendly.
CMA CGM, the fourth largest container shipping company in the world, has committed to the reduction of its carbon footprint, and has already reduced its CO2 emissions per container transported by 50% between 2005 and 2015, and is targeting a further 30% reduction by 2025.
Decrease in emissions
The decrease in emissions has been achieved through a variety of measures, including the introduction of bamboo-floor containers and a 2017 order for nine LNG-powered mega ships.
Furthermore, CMA CGM has also been making ongoing investments to ensure that it is compliant with the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) new Low Sulphur Regulation.
Mathieu Girardin, Vice President of CMA CGM’s Asia Regional Office, said: “This industry award salutes the outstanding leadership of CMA CGM to make shipping more sustainable. We are proud to be the first shipping line in the world to equip its giant containerships with LNG powered engines, as it reinforces CMA CGM’s continuous commitment to the protection of the environment through its boldness and pioneer spirit. By receiving this award, we are honoured that authorities and major industry partners recognize in the CMA CGM Group the front-runner of technological innovation in Asia-Pacific”.
