Lufthansa Group Offers CO2-Neutral Travel Options Directly During the Booking Process
The Lufthansa Group, which has already been working with Foundation myclimate for many years, is taking responsibility for effective climate protection – with a clearly defined route to CO₂ neutrality. By 2030, the Group’s own net CO₂ emissions are to be halved in comparison with 2019; by 2050 the Lufthansa Group aims to achieve a neutral CO₂ footprint. The company is focussing in particular on speeding up its fleet modernisation, the continuous optimisation of flight operations, the use of sustainable aviation fuels and innovative offers for its customers to make air travel CO₂-neutral.
For this purpose, the Lufthansa Group has created attractive offers that can either be booked as extras or are already integrated into tariffs. The Lufthansa Group is also offering various opportunities for CO2-neutral travel for business customers.
No matter which route Lufthansa Group customers take, two options – which can also be combined with one another – are available:
The Use of Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAFs) for Direct Emissions Reduction
Sustainable fuel certified according to European and in-house standards reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80 per cent in comparison with conventional aviation fuels based on fossil energy sources. SAF already represents an effective opportunity for customers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to enjoy CO2-neutral flights directly in combination with the offsetting of any remaining CO2 emissions via a myclimate carbon offset project. In this way, the overall proportion of SAF used at the Lufthansa Group can be increased steadily.
Contribution to High-Quality Carbon Offset Projects from myclimate
As a second option, Lufthansa and SWISS travellers can choose the offsetting of their flight emissions via myclimate carbon offset projects. These high-quality projects drive quantifiable climate protection worldwide and contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The following myclimate carbon offset projects are supported by the Lufthansa Group:
