NYK Selected for Inclusion in RobecoSAM's Bronze Class

NYK is the only Japanese company in the industrial transportation sector to be recognized as a sustainability leader.

NYK is included in the Bronze Class of the 2014 Sustainability Yearbook compiled by RobecoSAM AG (RobecoSAM) in Switzerland. The yearbook is regarded as the world’s most comprehensive annual publication on corporate sustainability performance, and NYK is the only Japanese company in the industrial transportation sector to be recognized as a sustainability leader.

RobecoSAM is a global SRI-evaluation company that selects companies for inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI), one of the world’s two largest indexes. Every year, RobecoSAM rates companies that conduct superior corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities and places the top companies in one of three classes: gold, silver, or bronze. SRI stands for Socially Responsible Investment, which is an investment based on not only a company's economic performance but also its environmental measures, compliance with laws and other corporate social responsibility factors as evaluation criteria.


For 3,000 leading companies around the world operating in 59 industries, RobecoSAM evaluated corporate sustainability in terms of management, society, environment, and other relevant issues. RobecoSAM selected the top 465 companies having a high standing and then placed 222 of those companies into three classes—70 in the Gold Class, 65 in the Silver Class and 87 in the Bronze Class. In the global industrial transportation sector, seven companies were included—one in the Gold Class, three in the Silver Class and three in the Bronze Class.

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
