CMA CGM Vice President for the Asia regional Office, Mathieu Girardin 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 honored that authorities and major industry partners recognize in the CMA CGM Group the front-runner of technological innovation in Asia-Pacific.”

The group operates four brands in the Asia-Pacific Region, CMA CGM, APL and ANL for the long-haul, and CNC for Intra-Asia.
