Lufthansa Cargo commits to UN sustainability goals

Lufthansa Cargo considers the focus on the five sustainability goals to be an integral part of its business activities. Together with all employees, but also customers and partners, Lufthansa Cargo wants to bundle all activities and successes in the field of sustainability in a targeted manner. “We are proud to have made our contribution to countless large and small projects over the past decades. This has resulted in initiatives such as “Cargo Human Care”, “Cargo Social Care”, “Cargo Crisis Care” and “Cargo Climate Care”, which underpin and demonstrate our commitment to corporate responsibility: Sustainable commitment is part of us and part of our DNA,” says Peter Gerber.

“But we want to continue to make a difference in the future and look for new solutions to develop our industry in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way. We also want to tackle where help is needed to promote equal opportunities.” Lufthansa Cargo also supports the other twelve sustainability goals of the United Nations and helps them in their daily operations.

The Global Gate which is currently being erected on the Lufthansa Cargo premises at Frankfurt Airport, symbolizes in an impressive way the UN’s declared goal of contributing to better economic, ecological and social development with the help of sustainability goals. At 24 meters wide and 20 meters high, it is the largest mobile work of art in the world, created by the well-known young German artist of the contemporary era, the 22-year-old Leon Löwentraut. Its design is based on the Brandenburger Tor.
