Corporate Responsibility within the Lufthansa Group

Corporate responsibility, that is to say sustainable and responsible entrepreneurial practice, is an integral part of our corporate strategy. It means that we are committed to creating added value for our customers, employees and investors and to meeting our responsibilities toward the environment and society.

For these reasons, we continuously improve our measures to safeguard the climate and the environment, maintain responsible and fair relations with our employees, and as a company actively engage in numerous social concerns.

The international economy and the air transport industry, in particular, operate in a dynamic environment that is defined by long-term megatrends and global challenges, such as population growth and the rise of megacities, increasing demand for mobility in the context of increasing globalization, climate change and processes of political transition.

The Lufthansa Group meets these challenges with a comprehensive sustainability agenda. It comprises the following files of entrepreneurial responsibility:

  • Economic sustainability
  • Corporate Goverance and complicance
  • Climate and environmental responsibility
  • Social responsibility
  • Product responsibility
  • Corporate citizenship

Committed to the United Nations’ sustainability goals

In September 2015, the United Nations’ member countries adopted the Agenda 2030 for sustainability; its central element is the 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As a company with global activities and the first signatory of the UN Global Compact from the ranks of the aviation industry, the Lufthansa Group feels particularly bound by these guidelines.

Of particular relevance are the climate goals, the responsible use of resources, adherence to social and ecological compatibility of innovation and digitalization projects, the promotion of female employees in management positions and the improvement of working conditions. Additionally, the Lufthansa Group is particularly committed to the areas of education and enabling through the help alliance, its charitable organization. Link: www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment
