Environment, Social, Governance (ESG)

To us, it is the responsibility of NYK to be a Sustainable Solution Provider and strive to remain essential and relevant to the world as a whole. Our focus on ESG-driven values continues to allow us to lead the shipping industry worldwide. Our commitment to sustainable development goals, as laid down by the UN, ensures we stay accountable to the future while striving to achieve ongoing success.


NYK ESG story

Throughout our efforts in automotive shipping, industrial shipping and break bulk shipping we are constantly striving to evolve our ESG practices and increase our sustainability worldwide. This is an endeavour that doesn’t just affect the operations of a single branch of NYK but rather a worldwide endeavour encompassing multiple branches of the organisation. So in February 2021, NYK released The NYK Group ESG Story as a way to address this important subject holistically.

The NYK Group ESG Story outlines the Group’s ESG management and provides concrete initiatives and the Group is pursuing to integrate ESG principles with management strategies, as specified in the Group’s medium-term management plan announced in March 2018.

In March 2022, The NYK Group ESG Story 2022 was issued as a progress report to follow up on the original story.
