CO2 Calculator – ex ante for each individual booking

Determine your CO2 footprint with our CO2 calculator - upfront for every shipment that flies with us.

Compare which is the lowest-emission routing when booking with  the help of our booking portal.

Visit our eBooking to try it out directly.

CO2 Report – ex post for all shipments

Receive a CO2 report by Lufthansa Cargo, which provides an overview of all emissions of your finalized shipments. In addition to the total CO2 emissions, the report also contains a breakdown by mode of transport and the top 10 Origins & Destinations with the highest emissions.

On request, get provided with a list of all AWBs, routings and products purchased from Lufthansa Cargo (e.g. temperature-controlled transports).

What are the options for reducing your own CO2 footprint?

through Sustainable Aviation Fuel.

The overarching term for sustainable, alternative kerosene is "Sustainable Aviation Fuel”.

Today, Lufthansa purchases biogenic SAF - produced, for example, from sustainably cultivated or recyclable vegetable and cooking oils.

SAF enables a closed CO2 cycle:

However, buying 100% SAF is not enough to make a flight CO2 neutral.

Emissions from combustion (TTW, Tank to Wheel) = ca. 80%
+ Emissions from production and transport (WTT, Well to Tank) = ca. 20%

= Total emissions of the flight event (WTW, Well to Wheel) = 100%

In addition, CO2 emissions must be offset during the production of the alternative fuel, its processing and transport. For this purpose, we offer you offsetting solutions so that you too can offer your customers 100% CO2-neutral flying.

In the long run, however, SAF is the much more sustainable option for environmentally friendly flying than offsetting - especially if sufficient fuel is available in refineries for non-biogenic SAF, Power-To-Liquid (PTL).

By purchasing SAF today, you are already supporting the most promising solution for sustainable air travel.

Join us in pioneering this technology and its further development.

By purchasing SAF, you invest in the progress of your own supply chain, whereas  compensation via offsetting offers no direct link to your own business model.

through offsetting.

CO2-offsetting describes the compensation of emissions in an independent project (often in
developing countries) that reduces or binds CO2 emissions.

In the reforestation projects offered by our partner Compensaid, CO2 emissions are sequestered during tree growth, i.e. within the next 20 years.

In case you would like to compensate the CO2
emissions, we can, in cooperation with Compensaid, offer further projects to choose from in the future.

How can you take advantage of the reduction of CO2 emissions?

at each booking.

Offset emissions at any time for an existing booking with Lufthansa Cargo. It does not matter whether you want to reduce emissions for a single shipment or the capacity of an entire aircraft.

With the offer of CO2 offsetting you have the option to reduce the pre-calculated amount of CO2 emissions for a single AWB either by SAF or to compensate with CO2 certificates.

Or determine the percentage of reduction - while the remaining amount gets compensated via CO2 certificates.

based on the CO2 report.

Based on this calculation, we will offer two ways to offset these CO2 emissions in the future:

By purchasing Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) or offsetting. The CO2 footprint of your shipments can be compensated

either with SAF or by offsetting, depending on your (or the shipper's) preference.

2. Step: You will receive a confirmation for the use of SAF and/or offsetting with the booking.

It's that easy to achieve CO2 reduction or even CO2 neutrality in transportation.
