Worldwide recognition of environmental management system
Lufthansa Cargo awarded international ISO14001 environmental standard certification
Frankfurt, 11 January 2016
The sustainable environmental strategy of Lufthansa Cargo is a success. This has now been recognised. The company has received the worldwide acknowledged ISO14001 certification. Certification began in 2008 in Frankfurt and was then gradually rolled out. Lufthansa Cargo has already been ISO certified at all German stations since 2010, and has now achieved worldwide certification.
“As an airline, we have a special responsibility to our environment. We live up to this responsibility through our ambitious environmental targets. For example, we want to reduce our specific CO2 emissions by 25 percent by 2020. Global certification of our environmental management system is another milestone in this. We are on the right track and won’t let up in our efforts”, said Dr Karl-Rudolf Rupprecht, Board Member Operations.
