The award was presented at the recent Maritime2020 Summit in Singapore.

The shipping giant was recognized for their efforts I making their fleet more efficient, environmentally friendly and sustainable. The CMA CGM Group foothold in the Asia-Pacific Region is impressive with 118 agencies in 19 countries and over 4,000 employees.

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.”

CMA CGM has a strong focus on reducing their carbon footprint, between 2005 and 2015 the group has already reduced their CO2 emissions per container transported by 50%, with a commitment to a further reduction of 30% by the year 2025.

The achievements have been made possible by investment by the group in breakthrough innovations, such as the introduction of bamboo-floor containers in 2005, the purchase of nine LNG-powered giant containerships and the ongoing investments pertaining to the new Low Sulphur Regulation, set to come into force in 2020.

The group operates four brands in the Asia-Pacific Region, CMA CGM, APL and ANL for the long-haul, and CNC for Intra-Asia. In 2016 Singapore was chosen for the groups regional hub, from where they operate over 100 services per week thanks to their best-in-class network of Ocean Alliance, North-South and Short-Sea lines.
