Sustainable global services
The CMA CGMN objective is to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. A short-term objective is to use 10% alternative fuels already by 2023.
Between 2005 and 2015, the CMA CGM group realized an improvement in carbon efficiency of 50% by TEU-km. Between 2015 and 2025, CMA CGM aims to reduce further 30% CO2 emissions per TEU transported.
The carbon neutrality target further strengthens shipping as a sustainable and efficient transport mode.
