in 2010, we further developed our existing orientation and embedded all aspects concerning this topic in a structure under the heading “Responsibility.”
To be able to manage all activities that are related to corporate responsibility and sustainable business practice at the Lufthansa Group even more effectively, the Sustainability Board, which had been responsible for these issues in the past, was expanded and more closely linked to the Group strategy. The resulting Corporate Responsibility Council, which continues to be interdisciplinary and companywide, is chaired by the head of Group strategy. The committee’s members are the heads of the Group departments in charge of political issues, environmental issues, human resources, legal issues, communications, investor relations and controlling.
To ensure that our criteria of responsibility are also followed throughout the supply chain, the Group department Corporate Sourcing contributes to the Council’s work in a consulting function.
Those responsible at the Group level agree on and coordinate projects in the area of corporate responsibility. The individual departments are in charge of the subsequent implementation. But employees are also explicitly welcome to contribute decentralized initiatives, ideas and optimum processes to CRC. Simultaneously, Lufthansa organizes and supports the cooperation and exchange of knowledge and information across the company by means of networks.
