The Lufthansa Group is making effective climate protection a major goal with a clearly defined path toward carbon-neutrality: compared to 2019, the Lufthansa Group plans to halve its net-carbon emissions by 2030, and by 2050, the Lufthansa Group plans to achieve net-zero carbon emissions.
This will be done by accelerating fleet modernisation, continually optimizing flight operations, using Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF), and providing innovative procedures that make passenger flights more carbon neutral.
AIRCRAFT NEED FUEL, BUT FUEL DOESN’T NEED TO BE FOSSIL.
A true alternative to fossil fuel and key on the path to CO₂-neutral aviation is the use SAF, which are fuels produced without the use of fossil energy sources. The Lufthansa Group is investing millions of euros into SAF and already today, they enable their customers to offset their CO₂ emissions immediately through SAF or via long-term climate protection projects – certified according to the highest standards, thanks to the Compensaid platform.
Passengers of the Lufthansa Group airlines can find the Compensaid tool directly in the airlines’ booking portal; Miles & More members can compensate their flights in the Miles & More App by activating the ‘mindfulflyer” function; corporate customers can use the Compensaid Corporate Program to offset the CO₂ emissions for their employees’ business trips.
NEXT GENERATION SUSTAINABLE AVIATION FUEL
The amount of SAF currently available on the global market is not yet sufficient to use large quantities in flight operations, and the price of SAF is significantly higher than that of fossil kerosene. The Lufthansa Group is therefore driving the development of new technologies so that SAF becomes available in larger quantities and at lower prices as quickly as possible, such as the Power-to-Liquid and the Sun-to-Liquid technology.
Both technologies use electricity made from renewable energy sources to manufacture synthetic crude oil that can be processed into kerosene. Lufthansa Group airline SWISS is set to become the first customer for the solar kerosene in 2023.
