Meet your carbon-reduction objectives
Cut your CO2 emissions by 15% well-to-wake (on the whole fuel production and utilization cycle) and up to 23% tank-to-wake (when considering only the moment it is used on our vessels).
Receive an official declaration
Certify that these savings have been associated with your specific shipments thanks to an official declaration. The whole framework is compliant with ISO 14020, 14021 and 14067 and is verified by an independent third-party.
How does it work?
- We offer CLEANER ENERGY LNG to all our customers, throughout all our services, by implementing a Mass Balance Concept*.
- This Concept is a way of diversifying our energy mix while keeping track of quantities and allocating them to specific traffics.
- A declaration is then sent to our customers, stating the quantity of LNG used and its associated CO2 savings.
- Remaining emissions can be offset thanks to POSITIVE OFFSET.
*The whole methodology is detailed in a framework available on our websites.
What is LNG?
LNG is a natural gas that has undergone a liquefaction process by cooling it down to -161°C. Stored in its liquid state in the tank, the gas is transformed into a gaseous state to fuel the engines.
The CMA CGM Group uses fossil-based LNG and biomethane guarantee of origin. Biomethane is derived from renewable resources such as agricultural vegetable waste.
