Offset carbon emissions
Take action with Compensaid
Travel connects us, helps us get to know other cultures and strengthens business relationships. Yet, at the same time, flights contribute to global CO₂ emissions. It is therefore becoming increasingly important to fly responsibly and to understand travel patterns and their impact on our planet. In this way, we can make the necessary changes together. That is why, in cooperation with the Lufthansa Innovation Hub, we have developed the Compensaid service. Compensaid enables you to keep an eye on your travel activities and to offset your carbon emissions. mindfultravel
How does Compensaid work?
The CO₂ calculator provided by the climate protection organisation, myclimate, helps you to calculate your journey’s carbon footprint. The result is based on the fuel consumption of the Lufthansa fleet. With Compensaid, you can then offset the emissions your flight has caused immediately afterwards.
Compensaid offers travellers two options for offsetting their carbon emissions: through the use of CO₂-neutral, synthetic jet fuel and through reforestation projects. With the purchase of innovative sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), the emissions can be captured immediately as SAF causes up to 80 per cent less CO₂ in comparison to conventional jet fuel. Reforestation projects, in contrast, capture the CO₂ resulting from flights over a longer period.
