NYK Included in the Global 100 for Fifth Consecutive Year

February 4, 2011

For the fifth consecutive year, NYK has been selected as one of the Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World (the Global 100).

The 2010 Global 100 was announced on January 29, 2011, at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Of the 3,000 candidate corporations from 22 countries around the world, 100 companies were selected, including 19 Japanese companies from a variety of industries, including insurance and electronics.
Launched in 2005, the Global 100 was compiled through 2009 by Corporate Knights1 and Innovest Strategic Value Advisors. During that time, the list was determined by analyzing extra-financial drivers of risk and shareholder value, including companies’ performance on social, environmental, and strategic governance issues. Since the 2010 list, Corporate Knights has collaborated with three partners2 and made use of the following key evaluation indicators:
- Sales per unit consumption/emission amount of energy, CO2, water, and waste
- Ratio of CEO’s compensation to average employee compensation
- Relevance between directors’ compensations and the degree of contribution to social sustainability
- Ratio of female board directors
- Level of compliance to Global Reporting Initiative or GRI guidelines
- Rate of sales to research and development costs, etc.
Encouraged by its inclusion in the 2011 Global 100, NYK, as a good corporate citizen, will continue to take an active role in social issues, including the conservation of the environment, to contribute to the achievement of a better global society.
