Lufthansa Munich hub recognised for sustainable environmental management
May 16, 2018: Lufthansa Hub Munich for the first time has been successfully validated according to the demanding European environmental regulation EMAS (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme) and certified with the international standard ISO 14001 for environmental management systems, setting an example of corporate environmental responsibility at its Munich location.
On the occasion of the first EMAS validation, Wilken Bormann, CEO Lufthansa Hub Munich said, “We are very pleased with this success, which we were able to achieve with the implementation of our pilot project in Munich. In this way, we also meet our premium standards in the areas of environment and sustainability and thus also the requirements of our customers' increased environmental awareness”.
The now implemented environmental management system of Lufthansa in Munich to EMAS was implemented in cooperation with Lufthansa CityLine. After the successful EMAS validation in Munich, Lufthansa is being expected to extend the validated and certified environmental management system to other locations.
EMAS is a system developed by the European Union eco-management and audit scheme - a seal of approval for sustainable environmental management, whose requirements can adapt company voluntarily. Here, the environmental management system of the company by external auditors is reviewed in detail.
