Towards a more sustainable future

Sustainability in business: embracing our responsibility

Our business activities not only have an impact on our economic surrounding, but also on our environment, people and society. We at AVIATAR, are aware of our responsibility and take it to heart. We contribute to ensuring that our world remains habitable for future generations. 

As part of our sustainability strategy, we support the sustainability ambitions and fields of action of the Lufthansa Group. In doing so, we pursue global climate goals to preserve our environment, place social standards at the center of our decisions and commit ourselves to ethically correct and honest business practices that comply with applicable laws and regulations.

AVIATAR is carbon neutral

We are a certified carbon neutral software solutions provider and thus pioneering among digital Tech Ops platforms in the aviation industry. For our AVIATAR customers, there are no additional emissions in their value chain. In close collaboration with SQUAKE, an independent and certified CO2 compensation platform, we have automated the calculation and accounting of our carbon emissions caused by the technical cloud and office infrastructure as well as ourselves when commuting or traveling for business.

Reduced footprint

We reduced our footprint by 50% while tripling the number of serviced aircraft on AVIATAR.

Renewable energy

100% of the energy we purchase for our german offices comes from renewables.

Compensating emissions

All emissions we are unable to avoid are fully compensated jointly with SQUAKE. 

"We intend to conduct further studies in the near future in order to precisely quantify the emission savings that AVIATAR enables for our customers, for example by avoiding technical diversions or by optimizing aircraft performance and flight operations. Here, we expect even more impressive figures."

We are making the difference

While SQUAKE keep track on AVIATAR's emissions, they also ensure their seamless, transparent and verifiable compensation in carefully selected and certified social and ecological projects around the globe, like our current investments:

Sustainable Aviation Fuel

Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) reduces CO₂ emissions by up to 80% compared to fossil fuel and is certified by EU-ISCC and RED, ensuring it avoids palm oil and acid distillates. Derived from used cooking oil, SAF maintains a carbon-neutral process by releasing carbon previously absorbed by plants. Contributions fund the purchase of SAF, which is promptly put into circulation, driving sustainable aviation forward.

Avoided deforestation

The Rimba Raya Reserve in Borneo, spanning 64,000 hectares, is dedicated to safeguarding vital species like the Bornean Orangutan. Facing threats from deforestation due to industrial and agricultural activities, this project serves as a crucial conservation effort. By supporting 13 community-based initiatives, ranging from water filtration to shrimp aquaculture co-operatives, the project aims to combat illegal logging and poaching while creating sustainable rural income sources. Through these efforts, the project annually preserves both carbon stocks and biodiversity in Indonesia's endangered rainforests.

Wood-based biomass

In Caieiras, Brazil, the replacement of a gas boiler with biomass decreases CO₂ emissions. Biomass residues are used to provide consistent heat for the paper mill while also promoting the use of ash as fertilizer, creating local employment opportunities, and lowering greenhouse gas emissions and wildfire risks. Additionally, carbon finance supports technological advancements and finances a renewable energy educational center at the mill, promoting innovation and sustainability.

Improved cookstoves

In Mexico, traditional open-fire cooking with firewood persists despite inefficiency. This project promotes higher efficiency cookstoves to reduce fuel wood usage, thereby lowering emissions, particularly from non-renewable sources. By addressing climate change and supporting Sustainable Development Goals, including poverty alleviation, health improvement, and biodiversity conservation, the initiative aims to reduce 1 billion tonnes of CO2 emissions by 2030 in partnership with Climate Impact Partners.
