Thai companies able to reduce carbon footprint, support sustainability organizations using Lufthansa corporate loyalty program “PartnerPlusBenefit”
Corporate travel and climate protection are a perfect match at Lufthansa Group – especially in Asia-Pacific. Small and medium-sized companies in the region are now able to book Lufthansa, SWISS or Austrian Airlines flights for their employees and at the same help reduce carbon emissions.
It’s as simple as it gets: Points earned through the existing corporate “PartnerPlusBenefit” program can be offset using the compensation platform ‘Compensaid’ to sponsor certified climate protection projects.
Companies also have the option to support selected sustainability organisations operating in their home countries. In Thailand, for example, they have the option to sponsor “The Rajapruek Institute Foundation” as well as the “Asian Elephant Foundation”.
The Rajapruek Institute Foundation strives to conserve and restore natural resources such as forestlands and protecting the future of the Thai ecosystem. The organization has four main projects: “Research and Forest Restoration”, “Community Development”, “Eco Tourism” and “Youth and the Environment”.
The Asian Elephant Foundation of Thailand works to help integrate elephants into modern life by promoting awareness as well as supporting an elephant shelter and includes a division for mobile veterinarians
“Combining our successful PartnerPlusBenefit program with Compensaid gives smaller companies in Thailand a powerful tool tailored to reduce their carbon footprint,” says Stefan Molnar, responsible for the Lufthansa Group airline business in Thailand. “Offering commercial solutions to foster sustainability is part of the Lufthansa Group strategy: not only cutting its own carbon emissions in half by 2030 and achieving a carbon-neutral footprint by 2050 but to enable others to do the same.”
Currently, carbon offsetting using PartnerPlusBenefit is exclusively available to Asia-Pacific countries like Thailand. “All key nations in the region are pledging support for carbon neutrality and boosting sustainability efforts,” says Mr Molnar. “Leveraging both, the strength of PartnerPlusBenefit and Compensaid, enables smaller companies to play their part and helps pave the way for reaching this goal.”
Lufthansa’s corporate bonus program offers small and medium-sized enterprises many ways to optimize your travel expenses. You can enjoy a global route network and a greater selection of awards than in any other corporate bonus program. Employees can earn points on business trips with Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian Airlines and other partner airlines within the global route network and redeem the BenefitPoints – now, including the opportunity to offset carbon emissions.

The digital compensation platform Compensaid was launched in 2019. No matter what airline they choose, private and corporate customers alike can calculate the exact carbon emissions of their flight and offset them. Lufthansa Group airlines have integrated Compensaid directly into the booking process. Frequent flyers will also find this option in the Miles & More app. Lufthansa Cargo also employs a compensation solution for CO2-neutral airfreight.
