Disclosure of Environmental Data

Disclosing GHG data based on the GHG Protocol

NYK regularly receives an assurance statement from a third-party certifier confirming that NYK is reporting and disclosing accurate numerical values for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by NYK Group companies. This data is then used in calculations to confirm that NYK is meeting the framework of Scope 1, 2, and 3 of the GHG Protocol*1, a benchmark that NYK has achieved since 2012. NYK’s certification was the first time in the maritime industry that data collection, calculation, and reporting had been confirmed by a third-party to be in line with Scope 3.
