Two NYK-operated vessels — Garnet Leader, a pure car, and truck carrier (PCTC), and NYK Remus, a containership — have been awarded the Panama Canal Authority’s Green Connection Award, a new initiative started on January 1 to recognize vessels who demonstrate excellent environmental stewardship.
 
The award is part of the authority’s Green Connection Environmental Recognition Program, and recipients are determined by evaluating eligible candidates based on the ship’s Environmental Ship Index (ESI) score. *


NYK considers environmental issues to be an opportunity for differentiation, and the company will thus continue to promote environment-minded activities.
* Environmental Ship Index (ESI)
An index administered by the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) to measure a ship’s emissions based on the amount of nitrogen oxide (NOx), sulphur oxide (SOx), particulate matter (PM), and greenhouse gas release
