JAPAN: K Line has joined the ‘Getting to Zero’ coalition that aims to help drive decarbonisation of the shipping industry.
K Line joins more than 90 companies and institutions in the coalition which was founded under the Global Maritime Forum at the start of September.
“In our medium-term management plan, we have set ESG (Environment, Society and Government) initiatives as a key management issue,” K Line said. The company has set a 25% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2030 under its K Line Environmental Vision 2050. It also started promoting its environmental management system ‘Drive Green Network’ group wide, including 14 affiliates from 2017.
“As an environmental front runner, we will continue to work toward the goal for 2050, aiming for the realization of our marine transportation business being more environmentally low-loaded and highly efficient from which more people throughout the world can benefit,” K Line said.
