Low Sulphur

Since the creation of the first Emission Control Area (ECA) in the Baltic Sea more than 10 years ago, Ocean Going Vessels are subject to stricter regulations both at global and regional level.

Since, ECAs have been enlarged to The Channel and North Sea, as well as North America and the maximum sulphur content has been reduced gradually from 4.5% to 1.5% and 1% up to this date, while the regulations set new limits in 2015 at 0.1% sulphur, which presents significant challenges for the industry including Oil Majors, Shipping Lines and Shippers

CMA CGM enforces its long-term commitment about protecting the environment, made sustainable development one of its main focuses and to comply with the new regulation set in place since January 1st, 2015.
