Lufthansa and Röhlig get together to cut carbon

[ February 22, 2022   //   ]

Lufthansa Cargo has joined forces with forwarder Röhlig Logistics to offer customers a sustainable transport service on selected routes, with investment in certified climate protection projects compensating for CO2 emissions that arise as a result of airfreight. Röhlig Logistics is initially committed to decarbonising air freight on four selected routes – Frankfurt to Atlanta, Mexico City and Shanghai and from Hong Kong to Frankfurt –  expected to offset around 1,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions.

Ten carbon offset projects run by non-profit organization myclimate, include biomass schemes in Brazil, efficient cooking stoves in Burundi, Nigeria and Kenya and community reforestation in Nicaragua.
