Risks and opportunities


NYK receives a trend score of =. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely remain the same. The company is projected to exceed its 1.5°C cumulative carbon budget between 2021 and 2035. Although the company’s emissions intensity decreased between 2015 and 2020, the rate of decline is not aligned with its 1.5°C pathway. The company has a comprehensive transition plan aligned with its 2030 and 2050 targets. Moreover, the company has invested in R&D of zero-emission ships. However, it is dependent on the rapid development of ammonia technologies for its planned transition.
