NX Shoji has been engaged in a project to donate to overseas recipients used office fixtures no longer needed by local governments and companies due to office relocation or layout changes, and this scheme has won the support of many customers for helping establish recycling-oriented societies by promoting reuse as recommended by the Ministry of the Environment and for embodying the presentation of concrete results toward achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Nippon Express decided to utilize NX Shoji's scheme to donate to Cambodia used office furniture no longer needed following the relocation of its head office from Shiodome at the end of last year with the aim of realizing the SDG concepts of "international contributions" and "formation of recycling-oriented societies". Second-hand office fixtures were shipped by sea from Tokyo Port to Cambodia and delivered to the Cambodian Youth Federation in March.

Nippon Express' donation to the Cambodian Youth Federation and NX Shoji's donation scheme both won the praise of HE Tuy Ry, Ambassador of Cambodia to Japan, who presented letters of appreciation to President Saito and Senior Managing Executive Officer Toshiro Uchida of Nippon Express and President Akita of NX Shoji at the Nippon Express Group Building.

The Nippon Express Group has been developing alongside society by connecting people, companies, and communities through the conveyance of goods, and the Group will continue fulfilling its responsibilities and actively engaging in social contribution activities.

[The 10 SDGs Project]
This initiative for making donations overseas aims to realize the SDG concepts of "international contributions" and "formation of recycling-oriented societies" as well as to enable both the emitter and the recipient to achieve their SDGs; it focuses on ten of the 17 SDGs.
