Nippon Express launches SAF program in Japan


Nippon Express Holdings launched NX-Green SAF programme in Japan allowing its customers to purchase the environmental attributes derived from sustainable aviation fuel SAF to reduce CO2 emissions within their supply chain.

The NX-Green SAF Program, launched by Nippon Express in Europe during July 2023, is a carbon-insetting program to help customers reduce CO2 emissions from all air transport services provided by the NX Group.

This programme 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.

Customers participating in the program will be issued with a CO2 reduction verification statement verified by SGS that can be used in the information disclosure required by the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures and CDP.

NX Group has set the goals of reducing its own Scope 1 and 2 CO2 emissions by 50% from 2013 levels by 2030.
