The JAL Group conducts CSR activities in a broad range of areas, while referring to ISO26000. We specifically focus on four areas, which we considered particularly important and closely related to the Group, in order to pass on a better society to the next generation.
We are pursuing initiatives to reduce CO2 emissions per RTK (revenue tonne-kilometer) to 23% below 2005 levels by fiscal year 2020, such as cooperating in research on biojet fuels and deploying fuel efficient operating methods.
In case of a disaster, we increase flights, operate unscheduled flights, open temporary routes, and such to secure air transportation. We also provide monetary contributions to affected areas and support NPO activities with their relief efforts.
JAL SORAIKU is a program of educational activities organized and conducted by the JAL Group to nurture the next generation. We hold five types of classes such as introducing the airline industry, jobs performed by airline staff, and JAL's activities.
Thinking about the contributions that we could make to society as an airline, we began cooperating in the "Atmospheric Observation" project in 1993, to investigate "the mechanisms of atmospheric variability that lead to global warming".
