CMA CGM and Electrolux Makes a Significant Move Toward Sustainable Shipping  


Electrolux, a global appliance company teamed up with CMA CGM to assemble big steps toward environmentally friendly shipping by setting an agreement to ship 40,000 TEUs of household appliances through CMA CGM’s CLEANER ENERGY LNG solution in 2022. 

A new milestone to accelerate shipping and logistics’ energy transition: This agreement underscores Electrolux’s ownership to reduce the carbon footprint of its shipments through the choice of cleaner energy and helps accelerate the energy transition by using Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)  

Addressing the issue of the current climate change, Mr. Laurent Olmeta, Chief Executive Officer of CMA Asia Pacific said, “CMA CGM is taking concrete actions now by adopting the best available solutions such as LNG, biomethane and biofuels while stepping up its investments and partnerships to develop a supply chain for new zero-carbon technologies such as synthetic methane. With the largest fleet of e-methane ready vessels already deployed, the CMA CGM Group can help shippers like Electrolux make significant strides in de-carbonizing shipping. As more shippers move their cargoes on sustainable fuels through our range of ACT with CMA CGM+ solutions, we are building on the economics for alternative fuels to accelerate the energy transition in shipping.”  

Mr. Carsten Franke, Electrolux Chief Operations Officer, also added: “These partnerships put Electrolux at the forefront in terms of the percentage of the total volume of products being transported more sustainably. As we continuously contract increasing volumes of biofuel for sea transportation, we are also supporting the overall market development toward more sustainable practices for shipping goods across the world.”  

In the future wise, to become Net Zero Carbon, the CMA CGM Group is taking concrete actions by choosing to invest in dual-fuel gas-powered vessels that run on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) which is an important first step in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Through this major partnership, the CMA CGM Group keeps moving forward to make shipping and logistics more sustainable and reach its goal to go beyond carbon neutrality and become a Net Zero Carbon company by 2050.
