For the second consecutive year, CMA CGM Group scored one of the best results in the CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) Transport and Logistics category for its policies, performance and transparency in areas related to climate change.

Created in 2000, CDP is an independent nonprofit organization and an internationally recognized reference in the field of strategy and performance evaluation of companies with respect to climate change. Its objective is to evaluate the measures implemented by companies to monitor CO2 emissions based on criteria of governance, risk management, operational capabilities and CO2 repartition.

CMA CGM Group scored 74/100 with a performance of B, a 57% improvement since 2011, well ahead of the CDP supply chain average of 49/100 and a performance of C. This excellent result attests to the considerable efforts CMA CGM Group has made over many years regarding its environment policy.

CMA CGM Group said it is strongly involved in several initiatives regarding the environment to better meet its customer’s requirement and expectations. According to the company, its CO2 emissions have already been reduced by 36% since 2005, one of the sector’s best performances.
