All Nippon Airways (ANA) and the Japan Overseas Infrastructure Investment Corporation for Transport and Urban Development (JOIN) have signed a memorandum of understanding to cooperate on initiatives aimed at manufacturing and procuring sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
ANA will provide advice and other support to JOIN's SAF projects overseas, based on its experience and know-how in the aviation business.
JOIN will work to secure and increase ANA's opportunities to stabilise its procurement of SAF by expanding investments in the SAF projects as well as actively working to supply SAF from the projects to ANA.
ANA is working on the stable procurement of SAF to meet the long-term goal of carbon neutrality by 2050 adopted by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
ANA has set the goal (replace 10% of its jet fuel with SAF by 2030) and to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 based on its Climate Transition Strategies.
JOIN will support Japanese air carriers to decarbonise their operations by actively participating in the SAF projects overseas with Japanese companies.
In addition, through the promotion of energy diversification in transport and urban development projects, JOIN will contribute to the realisation of the "Accelerating transitions toward a decarbonised society," one of the concrete pillars set in the Japanese Government's "Infrastructure System Overseas Promotion Strategy 2025”.
ANA is working on various measures to expand the use of SAF, aiming to replace at least 10% of its jet fuel with SAF by FY2030 and to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
