This year, under the medium-term management plan "Staying Ahead 2022 with Digitalization and Green," which integrates ESG issues into management strategies, NYK has promoted various initiatives, such as the first onboard use of digital currency, the remote navigation of a tugboat, and the operation of Japan's first LNG bunkering vessel.
Additionally, in October NYK took delivery of Sakura Leader, a pure car and truck carrier (PCTC) capable of navigating oceans with only LNG as the ship’s main fuel, and marked a remarkable step toward achieving NYK’s environment management target.
