NYK is responsible for bringing safe and certain monohakobi (transport) to its customers' supply chains, and in April 2010, we formulated “CSR guidelines for partners and suppliers” to better achieve this. The document contains guidelines related to the supply chain and covers issues such as legal compliance, fair trade, building trust, safety and confidence, the environment, human rights, labor, and corruption.
Explanations are given to Japan and overseas group companies every year, together with training programs to ensure the spread of the CSR guidelines.

As a global logistics business, the NYK Group is a part of its customers' supply chains, working with the support of a large number of stakeholders to provide safe and dependable monohakobi. We have formulated the CSR guidelines described below as a means of identifying and solving issues in the supply chain in areas like legal compliance, fair trade, trustworthiness, safety and security, environment, human rights, labor, and anti-corruption. We work with our partners and suppliers to encourage them to understand and practice these concepts.
