CMA CGM wins green award in Singapore

FRENCH shipping giant CMA CGM has been lauded for its sustainable practices to decarbonise container transportation at the recently held Singapore Environmental Achievement Awards 2022 where it won the Green Transport award.

The orgaiser of the award, the Singapore Environment CounciGroup, commented that the submission from CMA CGM stood out with its outstanding environmental performance; and for integrating sustainability in the group’s strategy in fighting climate change.

“Its energy transition and use of alternative energy sources have impressed the judging committee comprising the Singapore Environment Council, Singapore International Chamber of Commerce, Energy Market Authority, National Environment Agency, Lazada Group, SETSCO Services, STATS Asia Pacific, and Association of Small & Medium Enterprises,” a statement said.

On its path to be a Net Zero Carbon company by 2050, the CMA CGM Group has become a pioneer in the use of biofuel, LNG and bio-methane as transitional fuels, while the search for other energy solutions continues.

CMA CGM already has a fleet of 30 dual-fuel e-methane ready ships in operation today, which will increase to 77 by the end of 2026. The dual-fuel engine technology developed by CMA CGM currently runs on LNG; and is capable of using biomethane, as well as e-methane, a carbon-neutral fuel source.

Laurent Olmeta, CEO of CMA CGM Asia Pacific Ltd, said: “The accolade is a resounding recognition of the CMA CGM Group’s unwavering commitment to maritime decarbonisation. As our Group powers on with energy transition and operational excellence, we shall continue to innovate for solutions to become a Net Zero Carbon company by 2050.”
