Environment

Globalization of trade has improved the lives of countless people around the world, but there are inevitable environmental costs. As a leading international freight forwarder, we believe we have a vital role to play by managing environmental risks.

Reducing our carbon footprint

ISO 14001
Yusen Logistics has ISO 14001 certification for warehouses and offices, primarily in Europe.
Reducing environmental loads
We seek to reduce environmental loads by using resources efficiently, saving energy, reducing waste. Examples include:=(photo 1)
-A large-scale solar power generator, with 500kW output, in New Jersey USA. The electricity generated is used in the warehouse, with excess wattage sold to local power companies.
-LED lighting is being introduced in warehouse facilities, and is already implemented in our Japanese locations.
