SHIPPING line ANL, subsidiary of the CMA CGM Group has adopted the global campaign known as Better Ways, with a new brand signature that represents how the company operates in a sustainable way in the region.
As an international shipping operator with a head office in Melbourne, ANL runs services throughout Oceania, APAC and beyond.
ANL’s sustainability approach focuses on three pillars: people, planet and fair trade. As a part of the CMA CGM Group, ANL gives customers access to biofuel and LNG-powered shipping via mass balancing and will deploy other activities on services within Oceania in Q3 of this year.
Protection of life below water is also key for ANL and work continues on the Reef Recovery Program announced in 2020. Since the establishment of the program, ANL’s partners at Reef Restoration Foundation have put 1000 coral fragments in the water and are set to produce up to 3000 mature pieces over coming months.
People-based programs are also in progress both within and external to the ANL organisation.
ANL chief executive Shane Walden said, “We are committed to carbon neutrality by 2050, protecting the environment and doing all we can to support the vision of people living in a prosperous and sustainable world.
“Awareness and transparency are also key for ANL and the CMA CGM Group as the challenges at hand need to be understood and the actions taken by industry need to be science based.”
A global Sustainable Development Report detailing all metrics, targets and actions was released by the CMA CGM Group in May 2021.
“It’s essential that the business community work together towards Better Ways and a brighter future. Collaboration is essential within industry, across region and specialisation,” Mr Walden said.
