Green Building

Excellent environmental protection: Lufthansa buildings set standards

The Lufthansa Aviation Center is one of the first buildings in Germany to officially call itself a "Green Building". The reason for this is not merely the nine gardens, which, as natural "lungs", support the air conditioning of the building, but state-of-the-art technologies and highly effective thermal insulation. That's why the LAC consumes just under 60 percent less heating energy than conventional buildings. The result: 12,000 tons of CO2 less in the Rhine-Main region – every year.

The LAC thus symbolizes the sense of responsibility of the Group, which continuously invests in a modern, energy-efficient fleet.
