 Japan's Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK), the world's first shipping company to issue a labelled green bond, said that it has determined the below terms and conditions for the issuance of its 40th corporate debenture bonds, unsecured straight bonds. 

 
Bond name will be Nippon Yusen Kaisha 40th Issuance of Corporate Debenture Bonds (with inter-bond pari passu clause) and issue amount wil be 10 billion yen. The bond's maturity is 5 years.
 
In April and early May, NYK announced its intention to issue green bonds and the efforts being made to ensure transparency.
 
A green bond is one in which the proceeds are used solely for the purpose of funding environment-friendly projects. NYK’s new medium-term management plan “Staying Ahead 2022 with Digitalization and Green” positions the company to integrate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles into management strategies to contribute to the sustainable development of society and enrichment of the company’s corporate value.
 
NYK plans to use the net proceeds of the Green Bonds to expand the company’s resources for the procurement of funds, as well as keep a wide range of stakeholders involved in the company’s proactive approach to environmental investment.
 
In accordance with the new medium-term management plan “Staying Ahead 2022 with Digitalization and Green” that NYK announced in March, the company aims to integrate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles into management strategies to contribute to the sustainable development of society and enrichment of the company’s corporate value.
