NYK was recently selected for the UK-based FTSE Group’s FTSE4Good Index, a major socially responsible investment (SRI) index that has included NYK for many years.
The FTSE4Good Index is one of the two leading indexes used by investors concerned about corporate social responsibility criteria. The other major index is the Dow Jones Sustainability Index.
Selection in the FTSE4Good Index is based on independent international standards of corporate environmental sustainability and social responsibility, and NYK has repeatedly received a top rating in the “Environmental management” category.
Earlier this year, NYK was recognized as one of the 2012 World’s Most Ethical Companies. This is the fifth consecutive year for NYK to receive this honor. NYK, as a good corporate citizen, will continue to take an active role in social issues, including the conservation of the environment, to contribute to the achievement of a better global society.
