Environmental Management System and Promotion Structure
The JAL Group has established the Environmental Management Regulations based on the JAL Group Environmental Policy, and is building and operating the Environmental Management System (EMS). Based on this EMS, the JAL Group strives to achieve its environmental goals, as well as complying with laws, regulations, and other rules related to the environmental activities of our business, reducing environmental impact, and preventing pollution. In addition, internal environmental audits are conducted every year to confirm the conformity and legal compliance of the system and to check achievement status of the targets. Internal audits are conducted annually at each department in JAL headquarters, and over a three-year period at Group companies, and the results are linked to management reviews to ensure continuous improvement. In addition, JAL Royal Catering Co., Ltd. has acquired ISO 14001 certification in 2021.
The JAL Group aims to build a sound supply chain that takes sustainability into consideration in order to achieve the SDGs. In the JAL Group Supplier Code of Conduct, which was revised in July 2019, we ask our suppliers to implement the same initiatives as in the Environmental Policy and Action Plan, and to submit a written confirmation that the content has been checked. We are currently collecting confirmation letters from suppliers to prove that they have reviewed the contents of the Code.
For business partners, we stipulate in contracts that they comply with the JAL Group Code of Conduct "Commitment to Society," which includes environmental conservation content. During due diligence at the time of investment and M&A, we share our environmental policy and environmental management regulations with our business partners and encourage them to do the same.
