The Lufthansa Group has been awarded an “A-” in the renowned CDP climate ranking for its CO2 reduction strategy. This makes the Lufthansa Group one of the five highest-rated airlines in the world.
CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project) is a non-profit organization based in London and is considered the “gold standard” in calculating climate rankings. On a scale from “A” (highest) to “D-” (lowest), the Lufthansa Group is in the highest ranking tier with an “A-“. The organization annually collects information on CO2 emissions, climate targets and sustainability strategies from more than 18,700 companies worldwide.
The Lufthansa Group has set itself very ambitious climate protection goals and aims to be carbon neutral by 2050. And by 2030, the Lufthansa Group wants to halve its net CO2 emissions compared with the pre-pandemic level. This makes the Lufthansa Group the first airline group in Europe with a justified and scientifically provable CO2 reduction target in line with the Paris climate protection agreement.
What does this mean for you and your company? The CDP has given the Lufthansa Group top marks for the following criteria:
- Scope 1&2 (direct and indirect emissions)
- Scope 3 (indirect emissions within the supply chains)
- Corporate Governance
- Risk management processes
- Initiatives to reduce emissions
This means that the Lufthansa Group, as a partner company, can demonstrably provide you with more sustainable cooperation and issue you and your company with Scope 3 recognition for your international business travel.
