CMA CGM no longer transports plastic waste aboard their ships


Rodolphe Saadé, Chairman and CEO of the CMA CGM Group, during the One Ocean Summit organized in February 2022 by Emmanuel Macron (President of the French Republic) announced that the Group would no longer be transporting any plastic waste aboard their ships.

Effective June 1, 2022, the CMA CGM Group continues to demonstrate its commitment to protecting the environment and conserving biodiversity.

With this decision, the CMA CGM Group is stepping up its efforts to make conserving biodiversity one of the priorities of its CSR policy and to develop trade that is more responsible and fairer for everyone and for the planet. These actions will prevent plastic waste from being transported to destinations where sorting, recycling or recovery cannot be assured.

The Group has thus decided to take practical steps where it has the operational capability to do so, heeding the urgent calls made by certain NGOs.
