Green excellence

2017 05 24


With its OMEGA project – using big data to reduce carbon emissions – Lufthansa Cargo has  garnered the DQS German Award for Excellence in the Environmental Responsibility  category. The award winners were announced at the DQS Sustainability Conference 2017  on 17 May, which took place at Maritim Hotel Düsseldorf. To further encourage businesses  to make a commitment to the environment, DQS has launched awards for specific corporate  activities. The awards are conferred in different categories with a focus on sustainability,  including Sustainable Leadership, Responsible Sourcing, Social Engagement (International)  and Environmental Responsibility.

The Ops Monitor and Efficiency Gap Analyser (OMEGA) is a tool that uses data collected  during cargo flights to make future flights more efficient. Hence, the tool pays directly  into Lufthansa Cargo’s environmental responsibility strategy. By comparing projected, actual and  optimal values, it provides key information for reducing fuel consumption and carbon  emissions. Pilots can use the analysis to optimally prepare for a flight and identify any  deviations from the plan early on. The software was developed by software specialist Aviaso  together with Lufthansa. Special applications have been added for Lufthansa Cargo, such as  in the area of trim evaluation.

“Lufthansa Cargo has set itself ambitious goals in the field of climate and environmental responsibility. We are delighted to have received an award for OMEGA as one of our numerous measures aimed at improving the ecological efficiency of flight operations and achieving our targets”, said Bettina Jansen, Head of Environmental Management. Until 2020 Lufthansa Cargo wants to reduce specific carbon emissions by 25 per cent based on the level for 2005. This goal is to be met by all kinds of operational and technical measures. Significant carbon reductions have already been achieved in recent years by modernising the fleet and reducing on-board weight, to name a few examples.
