Four pillars for climate protection

Lufthansa Group works continuously on optimizing operations-related measures on the ground and in the air, and to make processes even more efficient in order to reduce fuel consumption and thus CO2 emissions over the long-term. A four pillar model for climate protection was developed in cooperation with other airlines. This agenda covers the entire scope of feasible measures.

Technological progress

Improved infrastructure

Operational measures

Economic measures
