Nippon Express Holdings begins offering NX-Green SAF Program in Japan

Nippon Express Holdings Inc. announced April 10 that it has begun offering the NX-Green SAF Program in Japan, which enables its customers to purchase the environmental attributes derived from sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to reduce CO2 emissions in their supply chain.


The NX-Green SAF Program, which began service in NX Europe in July 2023, is a carbon-insetting program that can be used to reduce CO2 emissions from all air-transport services provided by the NX Group.


Carbon insetting is a mechanism for companies to reduce their CO2 emissions by working with stakeholders in their own supply chains.


Air transport utilizing SAF can reduce CO2 emissions by about 80 percent compared to conventional fossil fuels.


This program is available for transport services arranged by the NX Group, and is the first Japanese-affiliated forwarder to offer such a service without restrictions on the choice of airline, according to NX Group research.


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, which can be used in the information disclosure required by the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures, an international initiative established by the Financial Stability Board in 2015 to encourage companies to disclose information on the financial implications of the risks and opportunities that climate change presents to their businesses, and CDP, an international nonprofit organization dedicated to research on and disclosure of corporate and urban environmental information.


To address climate change, the NX Group has set the goals of reducing its own CO2 emissions (scopes 1 and 2) by 50 percent from 2013 levels by 2030, and of helping realize carbon neutrality by 2050 (scopes 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,” the company stated.
