Responsible management aimed at sustainable value creation is ensured at the Lufthansa Group by efficient structures and processes. We have always attached great importance to openness and clarity in corporate communications. Transparency is an important precondition for maintaining and expanding confidence in Lufthansa among our lenders, our employees and the general public.
The Lufthansa Group operates as a global aviation company with headquarters in Cologne. That is why, in particular, German company law, co-determination law and capital market law along with our Articles of Association and company-specific implementation of the Corporate Governance Code form the basis of the Group’s management and supervisory structure.
Responsible and lawful behavior is a perquisite for the sustainable economic success of the Lufthansa Group. Lufthansa Group has implemented a comprehensive compliance management system, which consists of the compliance modules Competition Compliance, Capital Market Compliance, Integrity (anticorruption) and Embargo Compliance. Furthermore the Executive Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG has adopted a Code of Conduct as the foundation of a set of values for Lufthansa Group. This Code of Conduct forms the framework within which we make decisions within the company and on the basis of which we base and measure our actions.
The Lufthansa Group strives to operate sustainably and responsibly in all areas of its business. To ensure this, it has put in place a comprehensive sustainability agenda. Detailed information on this can be found in the section on “Responsibility”, in the summarized “non-financial report” contained in the Annual Report and in the annual Sustainability Report of the Lufthansa Group “Balance”.
