All Nippon Airways, JOIN to cooperate on SAF projects overseas
All Nippon Airways and Japan Overseas Infrastructure Investment Corporation for Transport & Urban Development (JOIN) signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) Dec. 19 to mutually cooperate on initiatives aimed at manufacturing and procuring sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) overseas.
All Nippon Airways will provide advice and other support to JOIN’s SAF projects overseas, based on its experience and know-how in the aviation business, and JOIN will work to secure and increase All Nippon Airways’ opportunities to stabilize its procurement of SAF by expanding investments in the SAF projects as well as actively working to supply SAF from the projects to the airline.
All Nippon Airways 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.
Furthermore, the airline has set the goal to replace 10 percent of its jet fuel with SAF by 2030 and to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 based on its Climate Transition Strategies.
In March, All Nippon Airways cofounded an organization, Act for Sky, for the commercialization, promotion and expansion of domestically produced SAF.
JOIN will support Japanese air carriers to decarbonize 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 realization of accelerating transitions toward a decarbonized society—one of the concrete pillars set in the Japanese government’s Infrastructure System Overseas Promotion Strategy 2025.
