Since November, Lufthansa Cargo customers can easily check the CO2 emissions of their shipment’s transport during the booking process. This is made possible by the new online booking portal eBooking, which Lufthansa Cargo launched in November. With the integrated carbon calculator, all customers have the opportunity to determine the CO2 emissions caused by the transport and to offset them in the future. At the end of November, Lufthansa Cargo and DB Schenker already carried out the first CO2-neutral freight routing, which was completely covered by Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).

As of the summer flight schedule, Lufthansa Cargo plans to offer CO2-neutral airfreight on a regular basis as a product for the shipping industry. The offer was jointly developed by Lufthansa Cargo and Compensaid, the central compensation platform of the Lufthansa Group. Once customers have determined their CO2 emissions, they can offset them by using Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF). In addition, it is also possible to offset through reforestation projects.

If SAF is used, Compensaid ensures that the corresponding sustainable fuel is purchased and fueled to compensate for the resulting emissions. For this purpose, Compensaid works closely with Lufthansa Group Fuel Management and with SAF manufacturers located around the world. Digital technologies of the compensation platform, which was launched in 2019, enable Compensaid to make the process from calculation to fueling transparent and efficient.
