NYK of Japan says it has become one of the first shipping companies to become a member of the Hydrogen Council, a global initiative of leading energy, transport and industry companies with a united vision and long-term ambition for hydrogen to foster the energy transition.

Through the activities of this Council, NYK will work to build a hydrogen supply chain and promote decarbonisation through the conversion to alternative fuels to power ships.

In the future, NYK will not only transport hydrogen but will also work to realise a hydrogen society, including the development of technology for using hydrogen as a marine fuel. The company will also seek to grasp business opportunities related to hydrogen, which is said to provide the ultimate clean energy, and become involved in the entire supply chain.

NYK places climate change as one of its most important issues, and is promoting the conversion to alternative fuels to aid marine-fuel decarbonisation, thus contributing to the conservation of the global environment. NYK’s membership of this Council will contribute to this goal.
