NYK has been recognized for the company’s participation in the Protecting Blue Whales and Blue Skies vessel speed reduction (VSR) incentive program along the West Coast of North America conducted by the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation.*

NYK achieved the gold tier for a fourth year in a row and received an incentive of US$12,500 for the company’s fleet traveling at 10 knots or less for at least 50% of the VSR zones.

To protect whales and cut air pollution, this program encourages voluntary vessel speed reduction in the Santa Barbara Channel region and the San Francisco Bay area. For about six months from May 15, 2021, the program’s partners analyzed each participating company’s automatic information system (AIS) data and evaluated the company’s adherence to the request that vessels transit at 10 knots or less through the VSR zones. The incentive will be used to address social and environmental issues under the NYK Group Sustainability Initiative.**

For our participation in this program, we received photos with hand-drawn pictures of whales and dolphins along with messages of gratitude from elementary school students in California.
