Shipping giant CMB pledges to offset all carbon emissions

The firm claims the move will allow it to reach ‘net zero carbon dioxide emissions’ in 2020

Shipping giant Compagnie Maritime Belge (CMB) has pledged to offset all its carbon dioxide emissions as part of a plan to reach ‘net zero’ in 2020.

The firm also announced it plans to reach ‘zero carbon emissions’ altogether from its shipping operations by 2050, through the use of new, clean vessel technologies.

It says it has already supported certified climate projects in developing countries and acquired high-quality Voluntary Carbon Units (VCU’s) in Zambia, Guatemala and India - these credits support renewable energy generation and sustainable agriculture and forestry practices.
