Lufthansa CityLine has once again earned plaudits for its successful environmental management. Aside from renewed certification of its eco-commitment in May 2012 by the European Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS), the regional carrier has additionally been re-certified for compliance with the ISO 14001 international environmental management standard. Both certificates apply to all three Lufthansa CityLine bases in Cologne, Munich and Frankfurt. The airline was the first in the world to be recognised for its compliance with both environmental standards. It has now obtained both certificates for the fifth year in a row.
An environmental regime has been firmly anchored at Lufthansa CityLine since 1999. The airline’s environmental management system encompasses all corporate areas, from aircraft maintenance and overhaul through to administration and flight operations. Continuous improvement is the paramount maxim. The airline’s environmental activities are spelt out in detail in the latest issue of its environmental report, which is available for download at www.lufthansacityline.com.
