Corporate responsibility


  • The principles of corporate responsibility are an esential part of our Company values.
  • Lufthansa is represented in the main sustainability indices.
  • Responsible business forms the basis for sustainable value creation.
  • The modernisation of the fleet has reduced CO2 emissions further.
  • Test flights with biofuels were brought to a successful conclusion.

Lufthansa has long felt a duty to uphold the principles of corporate responsibility, which is why these form an established part of our Company values and leadership principles. In the reporting period we introduced further specifications to our sustainability framework and allocated all our initiatives to the five familiar focus areas. These are economic sustainability, responsibility for the climate and the environment, social responsibility, corporate governance and compliance, and corporate citizenship.
