MOL has been recognised in Japan for its envoronmental performance

Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) has been recognised as a leader for climate change transparency by international, not-for-profit organisation, CDP.

MOL’s work in disclosing climate change data to investors and the global marketplace through CDP global environmental disclosure system for independent assessment has landed it in CDP’s ‘Japan 500 Climate Disclosure Leadership Index’ (CDLI).

In addition, the company has been awarded a position on ‘The A List: The CDP Climate Performance Leadership Index (CPLI) 2014’ for its actions to reduce carbon emissions and mitigate the business risks of climate change. This makes it just one of the 15 companies out of ‘Japan 500’ that have been recognised for both CDLI and CPLI.

MOL says it’s aware of the environmental impact of its business activities and sees the global warming countermeasures as an important management issue.

In a bid to help combat climate change, the Group has set a new environmental activities policy and targets, and is using technologies to reduce environmental impact and actively disclose environmental data in the new midterm management plan Steer for 2020 for the three years starting in fiscal 2014.

CDP claims to provide the only global system for companies and cities to measure, disclose, manage and share vital environmental information. It works with market forces including 767 institutional investors with assets of US$92 trillion to motivate companies to disclose their impacts on the environmental and natural resources and take action to reduce them.
