“K” Line Sets New Target to Reduce CO2 Emissions

17th April 2013

The “K ” Line set a target for “Reducing CO2 emissions by 10% from FY2006 level on a per ton-mile basis* to be achieved by the mid 2010s” under our mid-term management plan, ”K ” Line Vision 100, from April 2008 and with dedicated work, we were able to achieve this target per the results for 2011. According to these results, we decided to set new goal for reducing CO2 emissions toward the centenary of our company’s foundation in 2019.

We set the new target for “Reducing CO2 emissions by 10% from FY2011 level on a per ton-mile basis* to be achieved by FY2019”, and will carry this out thorough the introduction of energy-saving technology and energy-saving navigation. At the same time, we will continue to make every effort for further CO2 emission reduction and carry out various actions for marine and global environmental protection.

*Note: Per ton-mile basis is an index for transporting one ton of cargo one nautical mile (1,852 meters).
