Offsetting carbon emissions using Sustainable Aviation Fuel
The launch of the Compensaid venture by the Lufthansa Innovation Hub has established the groundwork for CO2-neutral flights within the Lufthansa Group. Compensaid provides an opportunity for customers of the Lufthansa Group to offset the carbon emissions generated by their flights through the use of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).
The venture was initiated in 2019 and has undergone continuous development over the years.
Since February 2023, Compensaid has been fully integrated into the Lufthansa Group. Lufthansa's airlines proudly stand as the world's first airline group to offer green fares. The introduction of 'Green Fares' allows for more sustainable travel with just a single click, as these new fares already include the offsetting of CO2 emissions associated with the flight.
The digital platform was collaboratively developed in partnership with the Lufthansa Group's fuel experts, who source certified fuel on a global scale and incorporate it into Lufthansa flight operations.
