Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. ("K" Line Group) will start a campaign to save electric power consumption in its head office in Tokyo that includes introduction of in-house Summer Time working hours system and reduce lighting and use of air conditioners. "K" Line Group has been proactively taking measures to reduce consumption of electricity by partially turning off lights in the wake of the Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami in March that crippled the Fukushima nuclear plant, sparking serious concerns about power shortages in Eastern Japan, including Tokyo. Over the past few years, "K" Line Group has implemented lower electrical consumption in summer by setting the temperature of air conditioners at 28C in consideration of environmental conservation. The campaign this summer is aimed at cutting power consumption by 25 percent compared with the peak season last year through enhancing such power saving measures.

Measures include:

  • Partial shutdown of air conditioners
  • Reduction of lighting units by half
  • Introduction of in-house Summer Time working hours system
  • Introduction of "Super Cool Biz" (Expansion of Casual Day from Friday to all working days)

The campaign is scheduled to begin on July 11 (Mon) in order to prevent power outages for over two months after the end of this year's rainy season during which time demand for electricity is expected to reach its highest level.

"K" Line Group continues to proactively contribute to society as a good corporate citizen and is committed to a voluntary approach to protect and preserve the environment.
