In June 2023, NYK started maintenance and conservation activities to restore biodiversity to forests based on a regional revitalization through forest development partnership agreement that the company concluded in April 2022 with the city of Gotemba in Shizuoka Prefecture.
As a corporate group whose business activities depend on oceans, NYK aims to restore the functions of forests by keeping them rich in biodiversity through mixed forestation based on the idea that "rich forests nurture rich oceans." Together with Gotemba, NYK also aims to make forests a place to pass on culture by, for example, providing children with educational opportunities through contact with trees.
Based on its environmental policy "to conserve the oceans, the global environment, biodiversity, water resources, forests, and other natural resources," the NYK Group will work to realize the theme of "Return On Earth" (i.e., giving back to the oceans, earth, and the people) outlined in the "NYK Group ESG Story" announced in March 2021.
On March 10, 2023, the NYK Group released its medium-term management plan “Sail Green, Drive Transformations 2026 — A Passion for Planetary Wellbeing.
” The NYK Group is promoting growth strategies with ESG at the core, based on the Group’s basic philosophy of “Bringing value to life” and a new corporate vision for 2030, which reads, “we go beyond the scope of a comprehensive global logistics enterprise to co-create value required for the future by advancing our core business and growing new ones.”
