In a major deal, Nestlé now transports 100% of its CMA CGM volumes with BIOFUEL+, a biofuel produced from organic waste that generates 84% fewer carbon emissions. This collaboration enables Nestlé to avoid 70,000 tons of CO2 per year and considerably reduce its annual greenhouse gas emissions linked to shipping.
Launched in 2020, ‘ACT with CMA CGM+’ low-carbon range has been designed to support the Group’s customers accelerate their energy transition. The offer enables customers to analyse their environmental footprint, reduce their carbon emissions through cleaner alternative energies, and offset residual emissions through environmental projects.
Stephanie Hart, Nestlé’s Global Head of Operations, commented: “Reaching net zero requires changing many aspects of how we source, make and distribute our products. The agreements we’ve signed with CMA CGM will help reduce emissions with immediate impact on our carbon footprint and lay the first stone for further partnerships to decarbonize shipping and distribution.”
“This agreement with Nestlé is one of the first of its kind, whereby shippers and beneficial cargo owners commit to decarbonizing all shipping emissions,” said Christine Cabau-Woehrel, CMA CGM’s Executive Vice President Group Operations and Assets.
