Lufthansa Cargo Collaborates with Nippon Express Europe on SAF

Nippon Express Europe and Lufthansa Cargo have agreed to use Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) for airfreight shipments in the future. The agreement aims to achieve emissions savings of around 3,150 tons within one year and contribute to certified climate protection projects for well-to-tank emissions. Nippon Express has set a goal of a 50% reduction in SCOPE 1 and 2 emissions by 2030 compared to 2013 and contributes to a carbon-neutral society by 2050.

Nippon Express Co., Ltd. aims to reduce emissions by 350,000 tons by 2023, equivalent to a 3o% reduction from 2013 levels. In May 2023, Nippon Express Holdings submitted a Letter of Commitment to be certified as a Science Based Targets (SBT) company, and the entire group is working together to achieve a carbon-neutral society by 2050.


Lufthansa Cargo is committed to the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals and is actively advancing five selected sustainability goals, including 'Climate Action'. The cargo airline supports the Lufthansa Group's ambitious CO₂ reduction targets, aiming to halve net CO₂ emissions by as early as 2030 compared to 2019. 


The airline is pursuing a clearly defined reduction path validated by the 'Science Based Target Initiative' (SBTi), making the Lufthansa Group the first airline group in Europe with a scientifically based CO₂ reduction target in line with the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement of 2015.
