In March 2022, NYK released "NYK Group ESG Story 2022," which introduces initiatives for integrating ESG into the Group’s management strategies set forth in the "NYK Group ESG Story" and provides a partial explanation of the Group’s sustainable growth strategy from a long-term perspective.
NYK also made efforts in 2022 to implement ESG management by promoting the introduction of an LNG-fueled ship, taking measures to promote the use of next-generation fuels such as ammonia, and entering the CO2 transportation business — effectively taking the lead in the shipping industry.
Furthermore, NYK concluded a comprehensive partnership agreement with Akita Prefecture (February) and opened the Akita branch (May), the company’s fifth domestic branch.
Going forward, we will work to promote renewable energy projects, human resource development, environmental conservation, and regional development.
In addition, digitalization through collaborative creation with partners has produced results, such as the launch of the "Maritime and Ocean Digital Engineering Cooperation Program," which is a joint laboratory at the University of Tokyo that includes a consortium of seven companies, including our group company MTI Co. Ltd. (October). We also saw the investment participation of Mitsubishi UFJ Bank Ltd. in MarCoPay.
