NYK Holds Seventh Environmental Management Conference

On November 18, NYK welcomed 53 environmental supervisors from 48 NYK Group companies to the NYK headquarters for the group’s seventh Environmental Management Conference.

This conference is held annually to encourage NYK Group companies to share information on environmental practices, activate communication among one another, strengthen cooperation, and enhance the environmental management of the group.

This year, companies were commended for their dynamic activities, and a number of group companies reported on specifics, including the development of technologies such as the air-lubrication system by the Monohakobi Technology Institute, the building and operation of Japan’s first environmentally friendly tugboat, Tsubasa, by Wing Maritime Service Corporation and Keihin Dock Co. Ltd., and efforts for ISO14001 certification by the Honma Corporation.

In addition, representatives in charge of general affairs and CSR at the Fujifilm Group were invited to give a presentation about the environmental and energy-saving activities at their group.

NYK makes every effort to manage environmental risks and contribute to a sustainable society to ensure an optimal balance between economic progress and environmental protection.
