Reduction of CO2 from Logistics

Transport volume / basic unit per transport volume

NGK has worked to reduce CO2 emissions from logistics, setting a target of reducing the basic unit per transport volume by 1% year-on-year on a five-year average, as required by the Energy Conservation Act. To achieve this target, we have implemented a number of measures, including improving loading efficiency and promoting a modal shift. In recent years, the basic unit per transport volume has shown a tendency to deteriorate due to a decline in the volume of goods transported by sea on account of a change in the product mix. In fiscal 2018, the five-year average deteriorated by 3.4% year-on-year.
