MOL Selected as a 'Noteworthy DX Company 2024'

May 28, 2024

TOKYO-Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL; President & CEO: Takeshi Hashimoto) today announced that it has been selected as a "Noteworthy DX Company" in the "Digital Transformation (DX) Stocks 2024" selection program administered jointly by Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE), and the Information-technology Promotion Agency, Japan (IPA).
The "DX Stocks" are selected from among TSE-listed companies that have established internal mechanisms to promote digital transformation leading to increased corporate value and have demonstrated outstanding achievements in the use of digital technology.
This year, 21 companies, including MOL, were selected as "Noteworthy DX Companies".

The MOL Group's DX initiatives were selected in particular for their application of the FOCUS (Note1) ship data platform to enhance safe operations, improve operational efficiency and optimization, and reduce environmental impact, as well as for the creation of new businesses through the MOL PLUS and MOL Switch (Note2) corporate venture capital programs.
In its management plan "BLUE ACTION 2035", the MOL Group has set "DX" as one of the five key elements among its initiatives to address "Sustainability Issues (Materiality)". In March 2023, it established the "MOL Group DX Vision", which outlines the vision it aims to achieve, and it is pursuing reforms from the perspectives of both business and corporate culture.
MOL will continue striving to advance its DX initiatives to realize "BLUE ACTION 2035" and the Group Vision. It will boldly take on the challenges of various social issues, sustain people's lives and industries around the world from the blue oceans, meet the expectations of stakeholders, and ensure a prosperous future.
