NYK Endorses the GX League Basic Concept

NYK has endorsed the Green Transformation (GX) League Basic Concept* announced by Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI).

The GX League is a multiindustry platform where government, academia, and finance collaborate to take on the challenge of GX (Green Transformation), to discuss the transformation of the entire economic and social system, and to take the lead in the creation of new markets in order to achieve decarbonization. The GX League Basic Concept is the platform’s basic guideline.

In September 2021, NYK set a long-term target of net-zero emissions of greenhouse gas (GHG) by 2050 for the NYK Group's oceangoing businesses. In addition, with the cooperation of our customers and stakeholders, NYK is actively engaged in various fuel-saving and GHG reduction activities, the promotion of LNG as a marine fuel, and research and demonstration projects for the practical use of zero-emission fuels such as hydrogen and ammonia.

NYK has decided to endorse the GX League Basic Concept because we believe that the direction of our efforts is consistent with its objectives. We will contribute to the decarbonization of Japan and the world by actively participating in discussions and demonstrations toward the realization of the GX League Basic Concept.

The GX, GX League, and GX League Basic Concept are outlined below (excerpted from METI website).
