CMA CGM Group Launches its Eco-calculator

CMA CGM Group announces the launching as from April of an eco-calculator accessible to all its customers via its e-business platform. Measuring the environmental impact of their supply chain has become an increasingly important issue for many companies. To meet this demand, the CMA CGM Group will be making available to customers a new service starting in April 2011: the eco-calculator.  Accessible to all the Group’s customers as part of the on-line solutions offered by CMA CGM via e-business, this latest tool produces an accurate calculation of the carbon footprint of a journey, based on real data including points of departure and arrival, volume of freight, fuel consumption and vessel speed. Developed according to the methodology of an international body, the CCWG (Clean Cargo Working Group), this eco-calculator will be the first to be verified by the Bureau Veritas. “Our new tool is extremely reliable and means we can now supply customers with very accurate data about their carbon footprint. We hope this eco-calculator will prove a useful tool in the decision making process and will help customers to determine the optimal mode of transport from an ecological point of view,” explains Philippe Borel, Environment Director for the CMA CGM Group. Reducing its environmental impact has been for long one of the key objectives of CMA CGM Group, the world’s third largest container shipping group
