French container carrier CMA CGM has improved the CO2 performance of its ships by 4% in 2016 as part of its plans to reduce carbon emissions.

The company said that the reduction is in line with its 2025 targets, by when CMA CGM intends to cut its CO2 emissions per transported container by 30%.

Between 2005 and 2015, the carrier improved its performance per transported container per kilometer by 50%.

The results were achieved through operational optimization of the fleet, technological innovations such as the bulbous bows that improve the ships’ hydrodynamics, the chartering of modern giant container ships equipped with new efficient technologies, and the company’s eco-container program, CMA CGM informed.

“Improved performance in the years ahead will come through the application of new technologies, including the use of alternative fuels such as liquefied natural gas thanks to partnerships with energy groups such as Total and Engie,” the company said.
