As a corporate customer of Lufthansa City Center, you can now reduce your CO2 emissions from flights by up to 80%. In cooperation with the Lufthansa Group, Lufthansa City Center is the first business travel provider to offer so-called SAF packages. SAF stands for Sustainable Aviation Fuel and is the generic term for all jet fuels that are produced without using fossil energy resources.
There are various production processes with different resources and ingredients used for sustainable aviation fuels. Lufthansa Group applies SAF made from biogenic residues, for example from used cooking oils and industrial waste materials which are hydrogenated and then refined like fossil fuels. Lufthansa Group has secured sustainable kerosene for a quarter of a billion US dollars in order to be able to meet the expected demand in the coming years. However, the overall SAF supplies available on the world market today are not sufficient to use large quantities in flight operations. The Lufthansa Group is therefore active in numerous projects to promote the availability of SAF, such as the opening of the largest SAF production plant in Singapore in Q3 2022.
SAF is an important step on the way to climate-neutral air travel. Currently, the use of SAF reduces CO2 emissions by up to 80% compared to fossil fuels. In order to become 100% climate-neutral, the entire supply chain of production and delivery processes, which also produce CO2 emissions, still have to be optimized.
