February 2019 Toyofuji Receives Award for Excellence at 2019 Aichi Environment Awards

Toyofuji Shipping's vessel "TRANS HARMONY 1" has earned the company the Award for Excellence at the "2019 Aichi Environment Awards" (sponsored by Aichi Prefecture, co-sponsored by the Environmental Partnership Organizing Club (EPOC) and the Chunichi Shimbun). Toyofuji President Tokuyuki Takahashi accepted the award certificate and trophy from EPOC Chairman Koei Tsuge at the conferment ceremony held on Thursday, February 14.

Established in 2005, these prizes are awarded to companies, organizations, and groups in recognition of technologies, business operations, activities, and educational efforts aimed at reducing environmental impacts. Toyofuji is the first marine transport company to have been thus awarded.

TRANS HARMONY 1's state-of-the-art environmentally friendly equipment and technologies are designed to improve fuel economy and purify seawater, and their effectiveness in reducing energy use and preventing marine pollution during transport are recognized as making significant contribution in establishing a low-carbon society and preserving our marine environment. This award follows another award for this same ship—the "Ship of the Year 2017 Large Cargo Ship Award," which we received in May 2018.

As a green company, Toyofuji will continue in our commitment to the global environment.
