Lufthansa Cargo gains environmental certification

Lufthansa Cargo has achieved ISO certification for its environmental processes.
The German cargo airline first achieved the ISO 14001 environmental certification process in Frankfurt and has since then rolled this out to facilities worldwide.
Lufthansa Cargo board member operations Karl-Rudolf Rupprecht said: “As an airline, we have a special responsibility to our environment.
“We live up to this responsibility through our ambitious environmental targets. For example, we want to reduce our specific CO2 emissions by 25% by 2020.
“Global certification of our environmental management system is another milestone in this. We are on the right track and won’t let up in our efforts.”
