Lufthansa Cargo global environmental management system recognised again
The Lufthansa Group’s cargo airline and subsidiary time:matters GmbH achieve revised ISO 14001 environmental standard certification.
Frankfurt, 27 February 2018
Lufthansa Cargo’s sustainable environmental strategy keeps going from strength to strength. The company has once again been worldwide acknowledged with the internationally recognized ISO14001 certificate. This time Lufthansa Cargo was audited according to the revised (and therefore more demanding) version, which contains a number of changes and updates not previously required so explicitly of companies. “We worked together with the various departments to successfully implement the standard’s more stringent requirements with respect to risk determination, stakeholder orientation and life cycle assessment, including supplier management”, said Bettina Jansen, Head of Environmental Management at Lufthansa Cargo. “As an airline, we have a special responsibility to our environment. We live up to this responsibility through our ambitious environmental targets, especially in areas of particular environmental relevance, such as flight operations, cargo handling and infrastructure.” Certification began in Frankfurt in 2008 before being gradually expanded. Lufthansa Cargo has already been ISO certified at all German stations since 2010. Worldwide certification for Lufthansa Cargo came in 2015 for the first time, and the scope was extended to include subsidiary Jettainer GmbH. The certification of subsidiary time:matters GmbH is now another successful milestone.
