NYK Included in Climate Disclosure Leadership Index for a Fourth Consecutive Year

NYK has been included in the CDP*’s Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI) for a fourth consecutive year. The company received a perfect score in the CDP's 2015 Climate Change Information Request, ranking in the top 10 percent of the CDP’s Japan 500 target companies.

NYK gathers environmental performance data within the NYK Group from 356 offices and about 800 vessels around the world. Since 2012, NYK’s collection and disclosure of numerical data on CO2 emissions covered by Scope 1, 2, and 3** have been certified as accurate by a third-party certifier.*** In addition, NYK makes every effort to improve and disclose its environmental data, and promotes the reduction of environmental impacts through the development of innovative technologies, such as the implementation of LNG fuel.

NYK contributes to the realization of a global environment and sustainable society and aims to be a leading company in the safety and environmental field based on the group’s medium-term management plan, “More Than Shipping 2018.”

 

* CDP

The CDP is an international, not-for-profit organization providing the only global system to measure, disclose, manage, and share vital environmental information. The CDP harnesses the power of market forces, including 822 institutional investors with assets of US$95 trillion, to collect information from companies on their greenhouse gas emissions and assessment of climate change and other issues related to the environment. The CDP’s annual information request was sent to 500 major Japanese companies asking the companies to measure and report data and information on climate-change-related issues affecting the companies.
