Lean and green Cargolux

Cargolux has become the first airline to receive the Lean & Green award, recognising its commitment to improve its carbon efficiency by 10% within five years.
Lean & Green was started in 2008 as an initiative of the Dutch government to reduce the carbon footprints of companies.
Dirk Reich, president and chief executive of Cargolux, said: “Since its beginnings in 1970, Cargolux has been known as a pioneer in the airfreight industry, constantly exploring new markets; new, innovative products and new ways of pushing the boundaries of this industry.”
Reich added: “We are very proud to lead the field once more and hope we can encourage others in our industry to follow.”
