Waste separation saves disposal costs Remarkable ecological and economic successes are also achieved by Lufthansa Cargo.

The Company has separated waste materials for more than 20 years and achieves a recycling quota of more than 70 percent. Sustainability Report Balance // Issue 2015 // Lufthansa Group // 53
