All Nippon Airways (ANA) is extending its SAF Flight Initiative offering to companies that use air cargo to transport and deliver products and provide a solution to visualise and reduce indirect CO2 emissions.

Launched in October 2021, the SAF Flight Initiative is one of ANA’s efforts to work with leading partners across a range of industries by supporting efforts to reduce emissions in the value chain as well as expand the production and use of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).

Under the current cargo programme, the SAF Flight Initiative is offered to logistics and freight companies that have a direct business contract with ANA, Japan’s largest and 5-Star airline for 10 consecutive years.

The new service will enable companies that use air cargo to transport products based on their track record, including factors like weight, volume, and distance of transportation.

Toshiaki Toyama, chairman of ANA Cargo, said: “Our SAF Flight Initiative is a critical component of ANA’s strategy to reduce carbon emissions in our own operations and be a catalyst for other businesses looking to become more sustainable.

“Global warming has become a business continuity risk far beyond our imagination. Against this backdrop, there is growing demand for more transparency and disclosure on climate-related information and measures throughout the value chain.

ANA is committed to contributing to society, and expanding the SAF Flight Initiative to our air cargo partners will allow us to have an even broader impact on the reduction of global transportation emissions and serve as a positive example to our industry peers.”

With the expansion of the SAF Flight Initiative to air cargo, ANA says it will continue to contribute to the realisation of the environmental goals for participating companies and will promote the use of the SAF in cooperation with its partners.
