Inpex, Idemitsu to supply All Nippon Airways with net-zero jet fuel for G7 Hiroshima Summit


Hiroshima, Japan

Inpex Corp., Idemitsu Kosan Co. Ltd. and All Nippon Airways Co. Ltd. announced May 1 they will jointly undertake the carbon neutralization of jet fuel across its entire supply chain for select flights in May as the Group of Seven (G7) Hiroshima Summit takes place in Japan.




In this initiative, Inpex and Idemitsu will acquire carbon credits to neutralize 100 percent of the CO2 generated across the jet-fuel supply chain from the production of crude oil to the operation of flights, whereupon Idemitsu will supply the carbon-neutralized jet fuel to All Nippon Airways.




This marks the first instance in Japan where an airline is supplied with jet fuel whose CO2 emissions are reduced to net zero across the entire supply chain.




The net-zero jet fuel is expected to power all scheduled All Nippon Airways flights departing from and arriving at Hiroshima Airport between May 1 and May 31 in tribute to the G7 Hiroshima Summit scheduled to take place May 19-21.




Carbon-neutral jet-fuel supply sequence




  1. Inpex produces equity Murban crude oil in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, UAE

  2. Idemitsu procures the Murban crude oil for jet-fuel refinement at a self-operated refinery

  3. Inpex and Idemitsu acquire carbon credits to neutralize 100 percent of the CO2 generated across the jet-fuel supply chain. Idemitsu supplies the carbon-neutralized jet fuel to All Nippon Airways.

  4. All Nippon Airways to operate carbon-neutral flights




The jet fuel deployed on the carbon-neutral flights will be neutralized by the procurement of carbon credits certified by the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation as offsetting all the CO2 generated across the jet-fuel supply chain.




CORSIA was developed by the International Civil Aviation Organization.




Furthermore, the procedure and completion of the carbon neutralization of the jet fuel are third-party certified by SOCOTEC Certification Japan, which enhances the credibility of the operation.




Inpex, Idemitsu and All Nippon Airways will continue to study opportunities towards building a carbon-neutral society after the G7 Hiroshima Summit.
