In a major ACT with CMA CGM+ agreement, Nestlé is now transporting 100% of its CMA CGM volumes with biofuel+, a fuel that generates 84% fewer carbon emissions, resulting in 70,000 tons of CO2 avoided every year.

As the two major partners claim, this collaboration enables Nestlé to considerably reduce its annual greenhouse gas emissions linked to shipping.

Stephanie Hart, Nestlé’s global head of operations, said: “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.”

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 analyze their environmental footprint, reduce their carbon emissions through cleaner alternative energies, and offset residual emissions through environmental projects.

Christine Cabau-Woehrel, executive vice president group operations and assets, noted: “This agreement with Nestlé is one of the first of its kind, whereby shippers and beneficial cargo owners commit to decarbonizing all shipping emissions.”
