At the Group of Seven (G7) summit held in Hiroshima, Japan, from May 18 to 22 , NYK exhibited a conceptual design for an ammonia-ready LNG-fueled vessel at the summitís PR exhibition space. NYK's exhibit included the companyís attempts to implement the world's first ammonia-fueled vessel with a domestic engine (i.e., ammonia-fueled tugboat and ammonia-fueled ammonia carrier) and contained videos and panel displays to introduce zero-emission vessels.

In cooperation with other companies, NYK is promoting its participation in a project to develop the first ammonia-fueled vessel with a domestic engine. This is part of the Green Innovation Fund projects* sponsored by Japanís New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO).

For domestic and foreign media, more than 30 heavy industries, automotive manufacturers, and other entities including related ministries, local governments, and public corporations set up booths featuring Japan's world-leading initiatives in decarbonization, biodiversity conservation, disaster prevention, digitalization, and other areas. NYK was the sole company from the shipping industry to participate.

NYK will continue its efforts to achieve its long-term goal of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to net zero by 2050.
