O à OHSAS 18001—Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series Job safety management system developed by the British Standards Institution in cooperation with international certification organizations. à Ozone Molecule formed in the stratosphere and consisting of three oxygen atoms. The ozone layer located in the stratosphere has an important protective function, as it absorbs harmful ultraviolet light. While ozone at higher altitudes is broken down massively by chloro- fluorocarbons (CFCs), it develops close to the ground under the influence of sunlight from numerous precursor substances (summer smog) and irritates the mucous membranes. At current levels, nitrogen oxide emissions from air traffic at cruising altitudes cause an increase in atmospheric ozone, analogous to the generation of summer smog, estimated by scientists at 3–4% on the heavily-flown North Atlantic routes. P à Passenger kilometers (PKO/PKT) Measure for transport performance in pas- senger carriage (number of passengers multi- plied by distance flown). A distinction is made between available transport performance (PKO, passenger kilometers offered, or, syn- onymously, SKO, seat kilometers offered) and actual transport performance (PKT, passenger kilometers transported). à Pro Recycling Paper Initiative Founded in 2000, the initiative unites various industries and aims at promoting intensive use and the acceptance of recycling paper. ­Lufthansa is one of the initiative’s founding members. R à RSB—Roundtable for Sustainable Biofuels International initiative to develop a global standardization and certification system for agrofuels. S à SAFUG—Sustainable Aviation Fuel Users Group Initiative of airlines, aircraft manufacturers, and providers of refinery technology whose goal is to accelerate the development and commercialization of sustainable fuels for the air transport industry. à Seat kilometer Measure for the transport capacity available (SKO, seat kilometers offered). à Seat load factor (SLF) Passenger-related measure of aircraft capac- ity utilization: the ratio of transport perfor- mance (PKT, passenger kilometers trans- ported) to capacity (PKO, passenger kilometers offered). à SES—Single European Sky Describes the efforts of the European Com- mission since the late 1990s to restructure European airspace for the purpose of optimiz- ing traffic flows and dissolving the airspace’s fragmented structure, which is defined by national borders and interests, by creating a limited number of Functional Airspace Blocks (FABs). à Slot Designated point in time at which an airline may use an airport’s runway for takeoff or landing. à Stakeholder Groups or individuals who formulate their demands on a company (e.g. attainment of corporate goals) and pursue these either personally or through representatives. This includes shareholders, employees, custom- ers, suppliers, and others. à Sustainable development According to the guiding principle of sustain- able development formulated in 1987 by the World Commission for Development and the Environment (Brundtland Commission), “sus- tainable development is […] a form of devel- opment that meets the needs of today’s gen- eration without jeopardizing the abilities of future generations to satisfy their own.” For businesses, this means acting responsibly not only in economic matters but also in environ- mental and social issues. All three aspects— economic, ecological, and social—must be kept in balance.  122 // Service and Information
