Environmental Competence: Overview Environmental protection as a responsibility

Environmental Management System

Environmental competence is quickly becoming a prerequisite for doing business, and at LSG Sky Chefs, we are committed to successfully execute our mission of conservation and protecting the environment. Inspired by this mission, we conducted a survey. Through the results of the survey we learned that 82 airlines placed eco friendliness as a primary target. This is why we continue to measure performance among our Customer Service Centers (flight kitchens) around the world. Water management, process design and waste reduction are just some examples of the extra measures we take in our commitment for sustainability.
