The Executive Board function Customer, IT & Corporate Responsibility is responsible for defining, agreeing and adopting the overarching environmental management targets and activities. In addition, all larger subsidiaries have their own environmental departments, an environmental officer or a coordinator.

The Lufthansa Group has been operating a central environmental database for several years. One of its functions is to collect and process information and data that is relevant to the environment – such as on CO₂ emissions – so this information can be employed in business decisions.

To support the systematic control and continuous optimization of environmentally relevant processes, the Lufthansa Group steadily advances the implementation of environmental management systems according to ISO 14001 or EMAS at the Group companies.
