NX Group Begins Offering "NX-GREEN SAF Program" in Japan

- Available for All Air Freight Services, Expanding from Europe -

TOKYO, April 15, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- NIPPON EXPRESS HOLDINGS, INC. has begun offering the NX-GREEN SAF Program in Japan, enabling its valued customers to purchase the environmental attributes derived from sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) (*1) to reduce CO2 emissions in customers' supply chains.



The NX-GREEN SAF Program, which began service at NX Europe in July 2023, is a carbon-insetting program (*2) that can be used to reduce CO2 emissions from all air transport services provided by the NX Group. Air transport utilizing SAF can reduce CO2 emissions by about 80% compared to conventional fossil fuels. The program is available for transport services arranged by the NX Group, which is the first Japanese forwrder to offer such a service without restrictions on the choice of airlines (*3). Customers participating in the program will be issued with a CO2 reduction verification statement verified by SGS, one of the world's largest certification bodies, that can be used in information disclosure required by the TCFD (*4) and CDP (*5).

To address climate change, the NX Group has set the goals of reducing its own CO2 emissions (SCOPE 1 and 2) by 50% from 2013 levels by 2030, and of helping realize carbon-neutral societies by 2050 (Scope 1, 2 and 3). The Group submitted a letter of commitment in May 2023 to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) to have its targets validated.

The NX Group will continue practicing sustainability management from a long-term perspective and contributing to better lives for people and the development of sustainable societies by addressing climate change through its business.
