Japanese Carrier ANA Recognised for Net Zero Ambitions; Climate Progress

Japanese carrier ANA has been recognised for leadership in corporate transparency and performance on climate change by global environmental non-profit CDP, being named on its annual ‘A List’ for the second consecutive year.

Among the companies selected this year, ANA HD is the only airline group in the world to be selected for two consecutive years.

Through the ANA Future Promise initiative, ANA invests in and supports actions to minimise climate change and prioritised this focus as one of the most important strategic imperatives.

ANA Holdings has established climate transition strategies to become carbon neutral by 2050 and meet preceding milestones.

The airline’s legacy of superior service has been recognized with SKYTRAX’s 5-Star rating every year since 2013, with ANA being the only Japanese airline to win this prestigious designation for 11 consecutive years. ANA has been recognized by Air Transport World as “Airline of the Year” three times (2007, 2013 and 2018); it is one of only a select few airlines to win this prominent award multiple times.

In 2021, ANA was awarded the 5-star COVID-19 safety rating by SKYTRAX, recognising the airline’s initiatives to provide a safe, clean and hygienic environment at airports and aboard aircraft, embodied in the ANA Care Promise.

ANA is the only company in the aviation industry to receive the Gold Class distinction from the 2022 S&P Global Sustainability Awards and ANA Holdings has been selected as a member of the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index list for the 7th consecutive year and the Dow Jones Sustainability Asia Pacific Index list for the 8th consecutive year.

Our efforts to reduce CO2 emissions in aircraft operations are focused on three pillars:

  • • Utilise SAF (Sustainable Aviation Fuel) through initiatives with stakeholders;
  • • Operational improvements; and
  • • Introduction of fuel-efficient aircraft.
