“K” Line Group Environmental Awards 2021 Ceremony held online on June 4, 2021.
The awards were established to honor and give recognition to outstanding environmental- preservation-contributive activities undertaken by both executives and employees working throughout the “K” LINE Group according to the direction developed in “K” LINE Environmental Vision 2050. This year marks the 7th awards since establishment of the awards in 2015, and we also have accepted many entries from our group companies both in Japan and overseas. Activities of seven companies have been selected from such standpoints as “originality,” “challenge level,” “degree of contribution,” “continuity” and “potential for pervasiveness”, and have received the awards from our President and CEO, Yukikazu Myochin.
The “K” LINE Group will continue to share environmental preservation activities being addressed within our Group companies broadly in order that we can further advance dissemination and enlightenment of environmental preservation activities as an entire Group effort by the presentation of these “K” Line Group Environmental Awards. Through this emphasis on continuing aggressively to contribute to environmental preservation and biodiversity protection, we should successfully accomplish our mission, i.e., “Passing on a sustainable society and this blue and beautiful ocean to the next generation” expressed in “K” LINE Environmental Vision 2050.
