Japanese shipping company “K” Line (Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha) has joined the Japan Hydrogen Association (JH2A).

Aiming to drive development of a hydrogen society in Japan, JH2A also hopes to engage in cross-sectoral initiatives, accelerate developments toward social implementation to realise a hydrogen society, and promote the establishment of hydrogen systems.

Members of the Japan Hydrogen Association include, ENEOS Corporation; Iwatani Corporation; Kawasaki Heavy Industries; Kobe Steel; Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group; The Kansai Electric Power Company; Toshiba Corporation; Toyota Motor Corporation and Mitsui.

In a statement, “K” Line said, “In pursuit of the principle in our long-term guideline concerning environment, “K” Line Environmental Vision 2050 – Blue Seas for the Future, under which we have promised not only to reduce the emission of greenhouse gas (GHG) from our own fleet but also to encourage decarbonisation of society, we are diligently working toward our goal to become a leading player to supply and transport new energy.”

“Hydrogen is expected to play a central role to solve global warming. We have decided to participate in the association because its initiative – the implementation of hydrogen in society and encouragement to develop hydrogen industry through collaboration with various stakeholders – is fully aligned with our principle to drive decarbonistion of ourselves and the society.”
