The Compensaid platform developed by the Lufthansa Innovation Hub in 2019 enables passengers to keep an eye on their travel activities and to compensate for the CO2 emissions inevitably caused by their flight.
Two options are available to travelers for CO2 compensation via Compensaid:
On the one hand, they can replace fossil aviation fuels with Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF). The platform calculates the price difference between SAF and fossil kerosene. Customers only pay the surcharge for the innovative fuel. If a passenger offsets the CO2 emissions of a flight with SAF, this is fed into flight operations within six months. SAF is one of the most promising options for making the future of flying CO2-neutral.
Alternatively, travelers can support high-quality projects of the Swiss climate protection organization myclimate, with which the CO2 is compensated over a period of ten years. myclimate has been a partner of the Lufthansa Group for effective climate protection since 2007.
With the Compensaid platform, customers have the choice of which approach they want to use to reduce CO2 emissions from their flight. It is also possible to combine both alternatives: Customers can determine the share of the compensation options themselves via a slider.
Passengers of Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines and Eurowings will find the Compensaid tool directly in the airlines' booking portal, frequent flyers in the Miles & More app.
Since April 2021, the "Compensaid Corporate Program" has given companies the opportunity to easily offset the CO2 emissions generated by their employees' flights by purchasing SAF en bloc.
