JAL launches SAF initiative for corporate customers

news item image
Japan Airlines (JAL) will launch a new business initiative called the JAL Corporate SAF Programme from April, which certifies the environmental value of CO₂ reduction achieved through the use of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) and provides it to corporate customers in Japan using JAL flights.
JAL has been working on reducing its direct (Scope 1) CO₂ emissions from aircraft operations and indirect (Scope 2) CO₂ emissions.
With this new programme, JAL will also contribute to the reduction of Scope 3 (emissions of other companies related to its own activities) for corporate customers.
Through this programme, JAL will calculate and manage the amount of CO₂ reduction data based on SAF certificates that indicate the CO₂ reduction rate achieved by using SAF.
These CO₂ reduction certificates will be issued and sold to corporate customers who require the environmental value. The certificates ensure transparency and social credibility through validation by third-party organisations.
Participation enables corporate customers the visualisation and reduction of CO₂ emissions based on air travel usage for cargo transportation and employee business trips.
Additionally, these certificates can be used for disclosing and calculating CO₂ emission reduction information required by TCFD, CDP, and similar organisations.
Corporate customers can contribute to sustainable air travel through the promotion and expansion of SAF, aimed at decarbonising the aviation industry.
The JAL Group is committed to achieving the target of replacing 1% of total fuel on board with SAF by 2025 and 10% by 2030.
To accomplish this, JAL will promote the procurement of SAF in Japan and overseas, and will further promote the utilisation of SAF by collaborating with stakeholders beyond industry boundaries in Japan to manufacture and commercialize domestically produced SAF.
