- NSK continues to implement broad measures in transition to green energy to reduce carbon emissions from business activities.
NSK Ltd. has completed the transition to utilizing green energy at its facilities in Europe.
NSK is moving to achieve carbon neutrality (Scope 1 + 2) in its European operations by 2030, starting with the sourcing of green energy for NSK Munderkingen Plant (bearings) in Germany in 2017, followed by NSK Walbrzych Plant (steering systems) in Poland in January 2018, and NSK Kielce Plant (steering) in Poland in January 2020.
In September 2021, NSK Newark (bearings and NSK Linear Guides™) and NSK Peterlee (bearings) plants in the U.K. switched to use entirely green energy, making it possible to significantly reduce and offset carbon emissions at all major plants in Europe. In addition, NSK's headquarters and technology center in Germany, as well as its distribution center in the Netherlands, are also now using green energy.
Tracking initial results, NSK's Kielce plant, the company's largest base in Europe, switched entirely to green energy in January 2020, reducing its carbon emissions by approximately 65,000 tons in the following year.
