“K” Line has announced its participation in the “Japan Hydrogen Association” founded by and among numerous private companies who are aiming for the building and enhancement of the hydrogen society. The association will promote global cooperation in hydrogen-oriented activities as well as establishment of supply-chain of hydrogen.
In pursuit of the principle in the company’s long-term guideline concerning environment, “K” Line Environmental Vision 2050 – Blue Seas for the Future, has promised not only to reduce the emission of greenhouse gas (GHG) from its own fleet but also to encourage decarbonisation of society. “K” Line confirms it is diligently working towards its goal to become a leading player to supply and transport new energy.
Hydrogen is expected to play a central role to solve global warming. “K” Line has decided to participate in the association as its initiative – implementation of hydrogen in the society and encouragement to develop hydrogen industry through collaboration with various stakeholders – is fully aligned with “K” Line’s principles to drive decarbonisation.
