Rodolphe Saadé, CEO of international shipping and logistics company CMA CGM Group on Wednesday (3 June) said the group intends to be carbon neutral by 2050 as part of his address at the UN Global Compact online conference.
Saadé also announced 10% of the company’s energy supplies will include alternative fuels by 2023
These steps are in addition to the company’s plan to reduce 40% of its CO2 emissions per tonne transported per km by 2030, a target set by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), added CMA CGM.
“In 2019, we reduced our total CO2 emissions by 6%,” commented Saadé.
“These significant reductions were made possible thanks to our mobilisation, the technological innovations implemented and an improved management of vessels operations.”
