|NYK launches online emissions e-calculator|
|Thursday, 03 November 2011 11:47|
NYK Group has developed a CO2 e-calculator with the co-operation of Yusen Logistics and made it available on its websites.
The e-calculator calculates the approximate amount of CO2 emitted during cargo transport by a containership or airfreighter. The tool has received third-party verification from LRQA Japan to certify its accuracy.
NYK had previously responded individually to inquiries from customers regarding data on the environmental impact of cargo transport, especially CO2 emissions. However, as more attention is given to carbon footprints the group decided to develop a tool that could allow end users to conduct these calculations easily themselves. After studying approaches by other companies, an e-calculator interface was developed, and given that most inquiries come from outside Japan, the interface was created in English, thus allowing the group to now easily respond to queries from around the world. Moreover, by making the e-calculator available on group websites, a wide range of users can become more informed about the impact of cargo transport on their carbon footprints. The e-calculator is also equipped with a function that enables CO2 emissions data to be downloaded.
