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 fields of entrepreneurial responsibility:
- Economic sustainability
- Corporate Governance and compliance
- Climate and environmental responsibility
- Social responsibility
- Product responsibility
- Corporate citizenship
The highest control body in the area of sustainable management is the Supervisory Board. Effective 1 January 2020, the Executive Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG was extended to comprise the Customer & Corporate Responsibility Division. Responsibility for the environment, climate and society is thus established directly at Executive Board level.
