Sustainability: A Corporate Value

As part of the CMA CGM Group, ANL has made sustainable development one of the main axes of our strategy. A priority that addresses the Group’s mission: contributing to sustainable globalisation.

This commitment is what leads our action and our strategy in every domain:

  • Acting for People: by ensuring the protection and professional development of our staff members and by supporting social innovations to local communities.
  • Acting for Planet: by preserving air quality, fighting climate change and accelerating the energy transition of our industry in order to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 while preserving marine biodiversity.
  • Acting for Fair Trade: by promoting fair international trade through strict compliance with existing laws and regulations, so that our Group sets an example in our business with the development of resilient, innovative and sustainable services.

By sharing our strategy with all stakeholders, we aim to encourage them to follow in our footsteps, as a leader in the energy transition of the transport and logistics industry.

In the 2020 edition of our Sustainable Development Report, you will discover what our short, medium and long-term sustainability goals are and how we are taking concrete actions to reach these objectives.

All our reporting is based on clear and understandable KPIs, like CO2 emissions, number of initiatives in favor of local communities or number of suppliers audited.

The Volun-TEUs

Whether it be for social or environmental initiatives, the Volun-TEU program was created to give all team members an opportunity to demonstrate their socially responsible behaviour and highlight our overall positive impact as people, employees and as a business because ultimately - it’s good to be good.

So far, this program allows our team members to do work with the following organisations:


The Big Umbrella

Team members take part in The Big Umbrella’s ‘Real Meal’ program. Solely run by volunteers, The Big Umbrella Foundation strives to eradicate poverty and exploitation on a local and international level. Team members help deliver dinner to those in need, which not only opened an opportunity to provide hot meals, but to create friendships, build trust and give something all of us have – time.

Clean Up Australia Day

A program developed by an Australian yachtsman that is now a global phenomenon. In March each year volunteers take to the streets and shores to clean up rubbish that may have otherwise ended up in our drains and oceans.

Round The Bays (NZ)

Round the Bays is New Zealand’s largest fun run (8.4k) along the coast line which boasts over 29,000 participants each year and growing. In teams, groups are given the opportunity to raise funds for the event charity partners, or alternatively a charity of their choice.

Days For Girls (PNG)

Days for Girls increases access to menstrual care and education by developing global partnerships, cultivating social enterprises, mobilizing volunteers, and innovating sustainable solutions that shatter stigmas and limitations for women and girls.


Youth Off The Streets

Youth Off The Streets is a non-denominational community organisation working for disadvantaged young people who may be homeless, drug dependent and/or recovering from abuse. Team members were tasked with cooking for youths residing at the refuge and for the food van, where they distribute food to the homeless people in Kings Cross and Darlinghurst almost every night of the year.



Our Commitment

To date, our commitment to protecting the environment has been exemplified by a number of innovations and initiatives, including:

Compliance To IMO Low Sulphur Regulation

The International Maritime Organisation’s (IMO) new Low Sulphur Regulation that entered force on January 1, 2020 which required all shipping companies to reduce their sulphur emissions by 85%. ANL’s vessels are fully compliant with this regulation.

Delivery of 20 LNG-Powered Vessels

[p]Through Containerships, the Group has already taken delivery of the LNG-powered Containerships NORD, Containerships POLAR and Containerships AURORA. These 1,400-TEU vessels thus became the first LNG-powered containerships to join the CMA CGM Group’s fleet.

Decision Not To Use The Northern Sea Route

The Arctic plays an essential role in regulating ocean currents and global climate patterns. The use of the Northern Sea Route represents a significant danger to the unique natural ecosystems of this part of the world. The CMA CGM Group has made the resolute choice to protect the planets diversity despite the competitive advantage this route represents.

World Premiere Test of Biofuel

In March 2019, the CMA CGM Group announced its partnership with IKEA and the GoodShipping Program to test the use of sustainable marine biofuel which is expected to deliver 80-90% well-to-propeller CO2 reduction, virtually eliminating Sulphur oxide emissions without engine modifications. The landmark test provides the maritime sector a vital demonstration into the scalability, sustainability and technical compliance of the bio-fuel oil.

Commitment to Protect Marine Diversity

In addition to other investments, the Group has also introduced approved ballast water treatment systems which clear the discharged water of any living organisms that may harm marine life, without releasing any chemicals into the sea.

A Common Ambition: Zero-Emission Shipping

The Group’s recent partnership with Energy Observer manages the development of cleaner and more sustainable energies to eliminate CO2 emissions, greenhouse gases and air.
