CMA CGM and Ifremer: a partnership agreement to protect the oceans and marine life

October 26, 2022

On October 26th, the CMA CGM Group and Ifremer, the French national institute for ocean science, signed a framework agreement on scientific cooperation to bolster research into marine conservation and restoration.

This three-year partnership aims to improve our understanding of these environments, to advance conservation and restoration efforts. It also aims to protect and conserve marine ecosystems in the French Antilles and the Mediterranean.

The first three projects will start up in 2023:

  • a research mission to study the impact on marine biodiversity of sargassum in French Antilles;
  • a scientific mission to assess the state of ecological restoration in the urban marine area in the Port of Marseille;
  • a scientific expedition aboard ships from the CMA CGM Group fleet, to observe and gather data and information on marine fauna around the world.

Watch the full video about this scientific partnership with the interviews of Claire Martin, Vice President Sustainability at CMA CGM, and Romain Charraudeau, Director of Partnerships and Innovation at Ifremer.
