K Line’s CO2 Reduction Targets on Track

By Aiswarya Lakshmi

Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. (K Line) has announced
that its CO2 reduction targets have been approved as
"scientifically consistent" with the 2 degree centigrade
temperature goal set by the COP 21 Paris
Agreement.

As a result, K Line says it has obtained certification from
Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi), and has set its interim
target to reduce CO2 emissions by 10 percent for 2019.

In March 2015, we introduced our long-term environmental
vision,"K" Line Environmental Vision 2050 "Securing Blue Seas for
Tomorrow" and set an environmental target to reduce CO2 emissions
from our operating ships by half before 2050 as one of our
counter-measures against global warming.

At this juncture, we set the interim target to reduce CO2
emissions by 10% for 2019 and successfully accomplished ahead of
schedule the target in 2015 and set a new interim target to
reduce CO2 emissions by 25% for 2030. At this time, this
milestone has been certified with SBTi.

SBTi is a joint initiative established by CDP and other
organizations in order to promote the achievement of
science-based emission-reduction targets for greenhouse gases,
and the existence of SBT is adopted as a part of evaluation item
in CDP.

As of 13 Feb, 2017, 211 of the majour companies around the world
have declared to set SBT, in their companies, including "K" Line,
of which 35 companies' targets have already been certified by
SBTi.

As a world-leading marine transport operator, "K" Line continues
to aim at providing more environmentally-friendly and efficient
transportation services for more people all over the world and is
making every effort to improve its corporate value.
