CSR Environmental Initiatives in
Ground Facilities

Energy conservation activities

We will also continue the following measures to respond to the Rationalization in Energy Use Law (responsibility of business operators to reduce energy consumption per unit of GDP by over an average 1% or more each year) in ground facilities.

  • Implement Cool and Warm Biz
  • Participate in Cool Earth Day
  • Renew aircraft to packaged air conditioning energy-saving type aircraft
  • Use LED lighting in maintenance facilities (hangars, docks)
  • LED lightning in Head Office building
  • Renew computers to laptop computers
  • Renew lighting to highly efficient lighting devices in cargo facilities (planned)

Use of heat in airports, offices, maintenance hangars (Japan)(Crude oil converted to kilo-liters) The volume and final disposal rate of industry wastes generated from domestic offices

Water conservation and pollution prevention initiatives

In maintenance sections where large amounts of water are used, water for cleaning parts of reused after purification treatment to wash aircraft by hand to conserve water.

Facilities and equipment inside maintenance hangars are managed appropriately in accordance with environment-related laws, such as the six pollution acts (Air Pollution Control Act, Water Pollution Control Act, Offensive Odor Control Act, Soil Contamination Countermeasures Act, Vibration Regulation Law, and Noise Regulation Law). There have been no violations of the six pollution acts in the past five years.

Waste reduction and resource recycling initiatives

The categories of waste from JAL Group's business activities are as follows.

General business related waste

Cabin trash, back offices, etc.

Industrial waste

Aircraft maintenance, sections, cabin sections, etc.

Specially controlled industrial waste

Aircraft maintenance sections, health management sections (medical)


The volume and final disposal rate of industry wastes generated from domestic offices

The JAL Group aims to reduce industrial waste generated from domestic business offices and achieve a final disposal rate of 2% or below.
In FY2012, waste increased due to realignment of the Haneda maintenance area and cabin seat retrofitting, but through cost reduction initiatives through the 3Rs, we have reduced waste and achieved the final disposal rate. There have been no serious violations of waste-related laws in the past five years.
