JAL Receives Environment Minister`s Award
Global Warming Prevention Activity "International Contribution Category"

~ Special Livery to Raise Awareness about Climate Change~

Japan Airlines today announced that the company has been awarded by the Ministry of the Environment (Japan) in recognition of their involvement with the CONTRAIL (Comprehensive Observation Network for Trace gases by Airliner) Project. Of the wide ranging activities that JAL is conducting to achieve Sustainable Development Goals set out by the United Nations, the CONTRAIL Project specifically focuses on climate action. (*1) This annual award has been presented by the Ministry of the Environment since December 1998, as part of its efforts to promote global warming countermeasures and to recognize individuals or organizations which have made an outstanding contribution.

The CONTRAIL Project was established by the National Institute for Environmental Studies, Japan’s Meteorological Research Institute, JAMCO Corporation, JAL Foundation and Japan Airlines. Since its launch in 1993 as the world’s first project of its kind, JAL has continuously measured the density of carbon dioxide (CO2), one of the causes of global warming, and gathered atmospheric samplings from skies around the world. The CONTRAIL data is then disclosed and provided to researchers worldwide to clarify the mechanism of global warming. As a result, similar observations using scheduled flights have recently expanded to other global research teams. By providing frequent measurements of CO2 density on a wider scale, it has led to clarifying the mechanism of global atmospheric changes.

JAL will continue to proactively challenge this activity as a leader of atmospheric observations.
