Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd.


Issue of the Social Environmental Report 2011



We have issued its "Social and Environmental Report 2011" in English and Japanese, which summarizes our activities for social contribution and environmental preservation. We have published this report to provide our stakeholders with easy-to-understand explanations on our approach to social responsibility and measures we take for safety in navigation and cargo operations and environmental preservation, which are based on our corporate principles.


In this year's report, we emphasized articles on four themes considered important from the viewpoint of responsibility as a shipping line. These themes are Safety in Navigation and Cargo Operations, Environmental Preservation, Work Environment, and Social Contribution. We also strived to show as many opinions from people working for the "K" Line Group as possible.


We hope you will find this report informative for understanding the social and environmental activities of the "K" Line Group.


The report as well as information not covered in the report is found on our website ( We hope that this report will help you to understand "K" Line Group.
