JAPANESE shipping company NYK has achieved its first carbon-neutral voyage by offsetting 5,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide, equivalent to the CO2 emitted by the ocean liner's environmentally-friendly car carrier Aries Leader during a single voyage between Japan and the Middle East.

Aries Leader is equipped with the latest energy-saving technologies, reducing CO2 emissions per unit by 30 per cent compared with an existing large pure car carrier. In this initiative, the remaining CO2 emissions not yet eliminated by technology were offset by carbon credits to theoretically reduce the CO2 emissions to zero.



The carrier said in a statement that it 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.



In line with its medium-term management plan 'Staying Ahead 2022 with Digitalisation and Green', the shipping line plans to continue its efforts to reduce CO2 emissions through initiatives such as the introduction of energy-saving technology and fuel conversion to realise the group's future carbon-free concept ship, NYK Super Eco Ship 2050.
