TOKYO: NYK has been selected “Best Green Shipping Line” by HAROPA, a joint venture comprising the French Ports of Le Havre, Rouen, and Paris for a fourth consecutive year.

Every year since 2012, HAROPA has evaluated vessels calling its three ports and recognized shipping companies attaining high scores on the Environmental Ship Index (ESI). 

NYK was one of 12 shipping lines recognized for 2015. NYK will continue its efforts to contribute to the realization of a global environment and sustainable society, aiming to be a leading company in the safety and environmental field.
