Lufthansa Cargo Looking for Good Green Ideas – Air Cargo Innovation Contest

Lufthansa Cargo is holding a contest inviting people to use their imagination and present their “Green Solutions” and ideas for “Add-On Services” to help reduce the cargo company’s environmental impact and improve their services.

The contest is open to anyone and everyone no matter where they live.

Here are some of the ideas that have come in so far:

Rate My Cargo is from ‘FrequentFlyer74’ who hails from Israel. The idea is to encourage the use of packaging made from environmentally-safe materials and components.

The Air-Base Is Now “Eco-Hub” proposal submitted by ‘Neduet’ of Pakistan suggests using solar driven PV cells and Piezoelectric materials for electricity to help make the air-base of Lufthansa-Cargo an energy self-sustaining work place.

Lufthansa Cargo will award three winners with a trip to Frankfurt, Germany where they will get to present their proposals to engineers and management and disuss how their ideas may be implemented. Winners will also receive flight training with a Lufthansa Cargo Flight Captain and up to 25,000 Miles and More Miles. In addition, a Most Valuable Participant will be awarded 25,000 Miles and More Miles, based on activity in the contest, quality of contributions and support for other members.
