Environmental Targets and Information Disclosure

ANA Group 2050 Environmental Goals

The ANA Group has set the following environmental targets for fiscal 2050.

  1. Achieve net-zero emissions from Aircraft Flight Operations
  2. Achieve net-zero emissions from all Non-Aircraft Flight Operations
  3. Zero disposal rate of resources such as plastic, paper, etc.
  4. Reduce the disposal rate of food such as in-flight meals by 50% (compared to fiscal 2019)
    Based on 2019 food waste rate (4.6%), 50% reduction in 2050 (2.3%)

ANA Group 2030 Environmental Targets

The ANA Group set the medium-term targets for fiscal 2030 to materialize "2050 Environment Goals".

  1. Reduce CO2 emissions (total amount) generated by Aircraft Flight Operations to FY 2019 or less
    In addition, continued improvement of 1.5% annual rate of the basic unit (intensity) for all domestic and international flights
  2. Based on FY2019 CO2 emissions generated by all Non-Aircraft Flight Operations, reduce CO2 emission by electricity and vehicle's fuel more than one-third (33%) of that
  3. Based on the disposal rate of resource (plastic / paper) in FY 2019, reduce the amount of disposal by 70% or more.
  4. Reduce the disposal rate of food (in-flight meals / lounge meals in Japan) from 4.6% in FY 2019 to 3.8% or less
  • The above targets will be reviewed regularly depending on the situation.

ANA FLY ECO 2020 Targets and Results

ANA FLY ECO 2020 incorporates targets reflecting the international airline global standards established by the ICAO. Our plan calls for controlling CO2 emissions, researching the regular use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), conserving resources, working for regional environmental preservation, and other measures to reduce our environmental footprint.

Evaluation by Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP)

CO2Reduced to5%

Per-Unit Targets
Reduce CO2 emissions per revenue ton kilometer (kg-CO2/RTK, total for domestic and international routes) by 20% before FY March 2021 (compared to FY March 2006)
FY March 2021 volume 5%* compared to FY March 2006
  • Due to COVID-19, significant drops in LF
    (F.Y.I. Reached 20% reduction in FY2019)

Controlled to1.67million

Overall Targets
Control domestic route CO2 emissions to an annual average 4.4 million tons from FY March 2013 to FY March 2021
Controlled to 1.67 million tons

Reduce Energy Used in Offices

Reduced by16.5%

Reduce total office energy consumption 1% per year (compliance with the Revised Act on the Rational Use of Energy)
Reduced by 16.5% year on year per intensity

Adoption of SAF

Determinedto purchase
SAF*1 fuel

  • (*1 Bio jets, etc.)
Research the regular use of SAF by FY March 2021
  • ANA and NESTE solidify Mid-to-Long Term SAF (Sustainable Aviation Fuel) Procurement Agreement manufactured in Singapore after 2023
  • In October 2020, ANA imported SAF manufactured by NESTE and used it on scheduled flights departing from Japan at HND / NRT airport (first in Japan)
  • ANA started studying carbon recycling business model for SAF manufacturing from CO2 in collaboration with 6 companies including ANA

Meet Aircraft Emissions Standards

met standards

Meet ICAO emissions standards for all aircraft (including leased aircraft)
All aircraft met standards

Adopt Low-Emission Vehicles

Currently, 1,407 of the group's 5,452 vehicles (25.8%) are low-emissions, low fuel consumption*2 models
  • *2 Fuel-cell vehicles, electric vehicles, hybrid vehicles, vehicles meeting exhaust emissions regulations

Initiatives as an Eco-First Certified Company

In 2008, ANA became the first-ever company in the airline and transport industry to be certified by the Minister of the Environment as an Eco-First Company. We received this honor in recognition of our commitment to social responsibility.
The ANA Group supports and conducts awareness activities for COOL CHOICE, a program led by the Ministry of the Environment to take measures against global warming. Further, we participated in the Plastics Smart forum in 2018. This forum is another initiative of the Ministry of the Environment aiming to reduce marine plastic litter.

Disclosure of Information on Climate Change

Declaration of Our Support for TCFD

As of March 2019, the ANA Group has become the first airline group in Japan to declare support for the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). We will analyze the risks and opportunities that climate change brings to our business, reflecting this analysis in our corporate strategy and working to disclose more relevant information.

Evaluation by Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP)

Evaluation by CDP seeks to disclose data and information about company strategy related to greenhouse gas emissions and climate change in response to stakeholders demands. As of FY2016, the ANA Group has categorized its greenhouse gas emissions into Scopes 1, 2, and 3 in accordance with the standards set by the Act on the Rational Use of Energy. This environmental data has been certified by third parties and disclosed. Our rating in 2018 was B. (The industry average is C)

SBT(Science Based Targets)

Greenhouse gas reduction targets based on scientific evidence consistent with the Paris Agreement. The ANA Group declared our commitment to the SBTs in May 2020. We are participating in a technical subcommittee creating reduction targets and rules for the aviation sector.
