Today, the Lufthansa Group has published its 25th sustainability report. For a quarter of a century now, the ኩባንያ has been providing information every year on the various activities, programs and advances but also challenges in the area of corporate responsibility, with the title “Balance”. In 2018, the Group identified the key areas for current reporting in cooperation with its interest groups again, in a large-scale stakeholder survey. The results are published in the sustainability report as a materiality matrix.
Responsibility towards the environment and towards society is a central strategic principle for the Lufthansa Group. For years now, the company has been strongly committed to limiting the environmental impact of its business activities to the unavoidable minimum – in the air and on the ground. The cover story “Maintaining balance. Out of responsibility.” shows what the Lufthansa Group has achieved since 1994 in terms of sustainability and takes a look at future commitments: “Being an aviation group, we are aware of the fact that the past years’ growth in passenger numbers also implies growing responsibility for us to ensure that future mobility will be shaped in environmentally compatible ways. To reach this goal, we continuously invest in new and especially efficient aircraft. We intend to take a አመራር role within the aviation industry on the topic of responsibility,” as Carsten Spohr, Chairman of the Executive Board and CEO of Deutsche Lufthansa AG, writes in the preface of the sustainability report.
