Japan Airlines' cargo facility at Tokyo's Narita Airport gains ISO 14001 certification

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com 29 November 2002

Japan Airlines' cargo facility at Tokyo's Narita Airport has achieved ISO 14001 certification, the first Japanese airline cargo facility to receive accreditation under this international standard for environmental management systems' quality, awarded by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

Every year 800,000 tons of international air cargo passes through Narita airport and half of this passes through JAL's Narita cargo facilities. In April 1998 JAL's cargo operations at Narita attained certification for ISO9001, a standard that not only guarantees product and service quality but also ensures that quality assurance systems for all processes function correctly. 

With the latest certification for ISO14001 environment standards, JAL is the first Japanese airline to hold the two standard ISO certifications for air cargo activities.

JAL sought ISO 14001 accreditation in order to:

- Fulfill the company's responsibility towards the community as a good corporate citizen,

- Save costs through recycling of materials and equipment, lowering energy consumption and reducing industrial waste,

- Exercise the company's responsibility in protecting the environment

The JAL ISO14001 certification covers five JAL cargo facilities at Narita airport including cargo warehousing of 103,400 square meters in area and 2,000 employees.

JAL Narita premises registered under the ISO accreditation include: 

Japan Airlines Narita Cargo Centre
JAL Cargo Terminal
AGS Aircargo service (a JAL cargo handling subsidiary)
Narita branch office of Tokyo Aircargo City Terminal (a JAL cargo handling subsidiary)

Japan Airlines' Component Maintenance Centre in Haneda airport, Tokyo, was accredited with ISO 9001 certification in January 1999, the first such accreditation for a Japanese carrier.
