CMA CGM, Nike Partner on Sustainable Shipping

[ March 14, 2024   //   ]

Global apparel and sportswear industry leader Nike has recently entered into an agreement with CMA CGM to purchase sustainable biofuel for a part of their maritime transport. This initiative will make an important contribution to the decarbonization of Nike’s supply chain.
From July 1, 2023, to May 31, 2024, Nike will use sustainable biofuel for the transportation of 36 percent of their volume with CMA CGM. Through this action, Nike will reduce their CO2 emissions by 25,000 tons.
“Collaborating with a key player like Nike and taking this major step towards decarbonization is an important achievement,” said Olivier Nivoix, executive vice president of CMA CGM Group Lines. “We are confident that our success will act as a catalyst, encouraging other carriers and customers to join us on this path to accelerate the transition towards a net zero industry.”
Committed to achieving Net Zero by 2050, the CMA CGM Group supports its customers in decarbonizing their supply chain with the ACT with CMA CGM+ range of low-carbon solutions.
Launched in 2020, the offer enables our customers to analyze their environmental footprint, reduce their carbon emissions through low-carbon alternative energies such as biofuel, LNG and biomethane, and offset residual emissions through environmental projects.
To support customers’ decarbonization, CMA CGM offers a range of sustainable transport solutions, ACT with CMA CGM+, to measure, reduce and offset the carbon footprint of your transportation.
CMA CGM’s solutions are based on the Mass Balance Concept, a solution that makes it possible to use several types of energy within the CMA CGM Group ship fleet and attribute them to different shipments, up to the quantities actually used. (Watch this video for more details –
