Lufthansa Group’s Commitment to Sustainability
This initiative aligns perfectly with the Lufthansa Group’s ambitious sustainability goals. The airline conglomerate aims to attain a neutral CO2 balance by 2050. By 2030, it plans to cut its net CO2 emissions in half compared to 2019. These objectives have been validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) as of August 2022, making the Lufthansa Group the first European airline group to establish science-based CO2 reduction targets.
How Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) Offsets Work
For those wondering, aircraft don’t currently fly on SAF in its pure form. Instead, it is a “drop-in” fuel compatible for blending with traditional fossil fuels. The airport stocks this blended fuel used on the airlines’ aircraft. The Lufthansa Group introduces the required amount of SAF into their operations within six months to offset individual CO2 emissions.
Flying to UN World Climate Conference in Dubai Consistent with Sustainable Values
In short, by opting for this fare, attendees of the UN World Climate Conference in Dubai can contribute to global climate protection efforts. They’re also supporting the Lufthansa Group’s long-term strategies for fleet modernization, optimization of flight operations, and the advancement of sustainable cargo transport. Plus, travelers get the added bonuses of a free rebooking option and a bike rental voucher to make their stay in Dubai and Abu Dhabi more enjoyable and eco-friendly.
