NextGen Ocean and Air Transportation

Our expertise

Aviation and maritime are hard-to-abate legacy sectors that have long-lived asset bases, high energy demand requirements and global logistical complexity. Ships carry approximately 90% of goods transported globally and aviation transports over 4 billion passengers annually. Both sectors account, in aggregate, for approximately 6% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions today. These sectors are rapidly adapting to address globally coordinated regulations, rising pressure from customers and increased scrutiny from shareholders.

At Nomura Greentech, the NextGen Ocean and Air team focuses on strategic M&A and capital formation advisory to both public and private companies across the holistic maturation curve of a corporation – from early stage innovators that focus on energy efficiency and low carbon technologies, to established incumbents that install or maintain offshore wind turbines.
