Hello, how can we help you?

Miles for climate protection

Miles & More members can now donate award miles towards CO2 offsets through our partner myclimate.

Earn miles for your CO2 footprint.

With myclimate you can donate miles for your own CO2 footprint.

Frankfurt am Main, 27 August 2019 – Europe’s leading frequent flyer and awards programme is committed to climate protection and is collaborating with myclimate, the Swiss non-profit foundation for climate protection. Programme members visiting miles-and-more.com now have the option under “Donate miles” to make an individual donation of between 3,000 and 50,000 miles for every flight, which is used to offset their CO2 footprint. Members have already been able to use a CO2 calculator on lufthansa.myclimate.org to calculate the emissions of their flight and donate a specific amount. With Miles & More on board, the partnership with myclimate has now been further expanded within the Lufthansa Group.

 

All mileage donations to myclimate will directly benefit a project in the Amazonas region in Brazil. The project involves an innovative and eco-friendly method of generating electricity by switching from diesel to climate-friendly FSC woodchips, in tandem with sustainable forest management to protect the region. This generates total annual savings of around 48,000 tonnes of CO2  and roughly 144 million litres of diesel.
