1. Background

In its medium-term management plan “Staying Ahead 2022 with Digitalization and Green” released in 2018, NYK announced the group’s intent to integrate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives into management strategy to positively address the tough issues that challenge our society. In fact, NYK has positioned climate change as one of the company’s most important issues and has demonstrated such by establishing medium- to long-term environmental targets and becoming the world’s first company in the global shipping business sector to issue labelled green bonds.

NYK aims to enhance these initiatives and help stakeholders understand well about the effects of climate change to the business and strategy by expanding the company’s disclosure of relevant information in accordance with TCFD recommendations.
