Energy companies INPEX and Idemitsu Kosan recently announced they were teaming up with All Nippon Airways (ANA) to launch an initiative to use carbon-neutralized jet fuel across the airline’s supply chain to power all ANA flights arriving and departing from Japan's Hiroshima Airport between May 1, 2023 and May 31, 2023.
INPEX and Idemitsu will acquire carbon credits in order to neutralize 100% of the carbon dioxide generated by ANA’s jet fuel supply chain. After that, Idemitsu will supply ANA with carbon-neutralized jet fuel.
Once the first flight takes off, it is expected to be the first instance in Japan where an airline is supplied with fuel whose CO2 emissions are reduced to net zero across the entire supply chain.
This initiative is part of the ANA Group’s effort to achieve net zero CO2 emissions from aircraft operations by the 2050 fiscal year.
