SINGAPORE: June 10, 2019. CMA CGM subsidiary APL says its CO2 emissions per container transported per kilometre fell 47. 4 percent in 2018 compared to a 2009 base level.

APL containerThe result follows an assessment of the company’s 2018 emission data by the Clean Cargo Working Group, part of Business for Social Responsibility, and verified by Lloyd’s Register Group.

“As part of the CMA CGM Group, APL is firmly committed towards the protection of the environment and the reduction of its carbon footprint,” declared APL Global head for Safety Security and Environment Dennis Yee. “Building upon the successful results we have achieved in this area, we are determined to persevere in our pursuits for excellence in sustainable shipping.”

The CMA CGM Group says it wants to reduce CO2 emissions by 30 percent between 2015 and 2025 after achieving a 50 percent reduction in the previous decade.

Gearing up for the Global Sulphur Cap from January next year, APL will be using low-sulphur compliant fuel oil across its vessel fleet; employing scrubbers on some vessels; and operating LNG-fuelled vessels. The company has also been generating quarterly reports of carbon emissions on behalf of its customers.
