A firm eye on the environment
The Lufthansa Group’s corporate management practices are guided by values, and central to those practices is a sense of responsibility for the climate and environment. To achieve steady reductions in the effects our business operations have on the environment, we make as efficient use of the resources we need as possible.
According to a prognosis made by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) in December 2013 (Airline Industry Forecast 2013–2017), passenger volume will increase by 31% worldwide by 2017. The number of passengers, accordingly, is expected to increase from 2.98 billion in 2012 to 3.91 billion in 2017. This is equivalent to an annual growth rate of 5.4%.
By implementing a wide range of measures, Lufthansa and its Group companies continuously work on increasing their ecological efficiency in flight operations over the long-term. Apart from billion-euro investments in a state-of-the-art low-emissions fleet, this also includes the implementation of the latest technologies in aircraft maintenance. In addition, all processes with an influence on weight are examined with the greatest care.
The focus of the company’s environmental strategy remains on long-term reductions in different areas: pollutant and noise emissions as well as energy consumption.
