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

October 15, 2014

NYK has once again been included in CDP’s Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI). NYK received a score of 99 out of 100 in the CDP's 2014 Climate Change Information Request, ranking in the top 10 percent of Japan’s 500 largest companies for a third consecutive year.
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 767 institutional investors with assets of US$92 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 the Japan 500 target companies asking the companies to measure and report data and information on climate-change-related issues affecting the companies.
In fiscal 2013, NYK gathered environmental performance data from about 354 offices and 800 vessels within the NYK Group. During that time, NYK strengthened its fuel-saving activity, promoted the development of innovative technologies, and successfully reduced negative environmental impacts. In addition, NYK’s collection and disclosure of numerical data on CO2 emissions covered by Scope 1, 2, and 3* of the GHG Protocol were certified as accurate by a third-party certifier.**
NYK continues to contribute to the global environment and a sustainable society through implementation of the NYK Group’s “More Than Shipping 2018” medium-term management plan.
* Details of NYK's compliance with Scope 1 to 3 of the GHG Protocol are provided in the table below.

Sample objects for calculation
Scope 1
Sources of manageable direct emissions
GHG emissions, such as those from fuel usage, through the company’s own activities at owned facilities
*CO2 emissions from fuels (city gas, heavy oil, light oil, gasoline, etc.)
Scope 2
Sources of manageable indirect emissions
Among GHG emissions resulting from energy consumption, those generated by purchased electricity and heat (steam, hot and cold water)
*CO2 emissions generated by power companies and resulting from electricity usage, and CO2 emissions generated by regional heat suppliers and resulting from the usage of steam, and hot and cold water
Scope 3
Indirect emissions through a company’s value chain apart from Scope 2
GHG emissions through the value chain, including purchasing raw materials and products required for business operations, and product transport and services to offer
*CO2 emissions resulting from commuting and business trips by NYK employees, the manufacture of vessels and air freighters, and the refining of bunker and jet fuels
*CO2 emissions attributed to the production and transport of raw materials
*CO2 emissions attributed to additional product fabrication at the destination where products are delivered and sold
*CO2 emissions in line with employees' commuting and business trips
