Lufthansa gains ISO cert
29 / 01 / 2009
LUFTHANSA Cargo has been certified at its Frankfurt base to the international environmental standard ISO 14001, verifying that its environmental management system satisfies the requirements of the ISO norm.
Certification is granted to companies that exercise responsibility in their business operations by actively assessing and taking systematic steps to reduce the environmental impact of their processes, products and services. Alongside yearly internal and external audits, Lufthansa Cargo’s entire environmental system will now be monitored by external auditors every three years.
“Lufthansa Cargo is aware of its responsibility and the need to strike a balance between profitability and environmental protection,” said Lufthansa cargo board member operations, Karl-Heinz Köpfle. “To that end, we invest in research and new technologies, we spur innovation and optimise our processes. One of our environmental targets is to reduce our specific CO2 emissions in the transport of air cargo by 25 per cent by 2020.”
