Shipping major NYK has undertaken Japan’s first carbon-neutral voyage by offsetting 5,000 tons of CO2.

The amount is equivalent to the CO2 emitted by NYK’s environmental flagship car carrier Aries Leader during one voyage between Japan and the Middle East.

The vessel is equipped with the latest energy-saving technologies, reducing CO2 emissions per unit by 30% compared with existing large pure car carriers, according to the company.

“This initiative demonstrates the ability of NYK to provide carbon-neutral transportation to its Japanese and overseas customers, thus meeting the demand for a more sustainable, carbon-free supply chain.

“NYK will propose and expand its carbon offsets to customers as an option that benefits the environment and contributes to a zero-carbon-footprint supply chain.”

The company will continue its efforts to create new green businesses through carbon credit initiatives and realize its basic philosophy of “Bringing value to life”.
