The ANA Group established the "ANA Group Environmental Principles" in 1998 and the "ANA Group Environmental Policies" in 2017, and considers the achievement of environmental targets to solve environmental issues and biodiversity conservation as important management issues. In March 2018, we became the first Japanese airline to sign the "Buckingham Palace Declaration," which aims to eradicate illegal wildlife trade as recommended by IATA. We are promoting biodiversity initiatives by preventing the transport of alien species, providing transportation that takes into consideration the protection of rare species, and strengthening border measures in our business activities of transportation. In addition, we have formulated the ANA Group Supplier Code of Conduct for all suppliers of services and products that support our airline business, to ensure that they understand our biodiversity initiatives.
The ANA CEO's Declaration "Eco-First Promise" has been certified by the Minister of the Environment to promote activities for biodiversity. As a corporate member of WWF Japan since May 2022, ANA Group supports WWF's environmental conservation activities and promotes biodiversity conservation activities through its business activities.

ANA Group Environmental Targets and Biodiversity
In April 2021, the ANA Group declared its commitment to carbon neutrality by fiscal 2050 in its "2050 Environmental Goals" and formulated its "2030 Environmental Targets" to reduce its environmental impact. We believe that achieving our environmental goals through our business activities will lead to stopping climate change, protecting the environment, and preserving ecosystems. The ANA Group's environmental goals include not only the realization of a decarbonized society, but also targets to reduce food loss and resource (plastic and paper) use. Reducing CO2 emissions mitigates climate change and protects living organisms from disasters. Reducing waste preserves ecosystems. Reducing paper use will also halt deforestation, protect oxygen-producing forests, and conserve the ecosystems that inhabit them. In this way, we are striving to achieve our environmental goals, recognizing that everything is a part of a cycle.
