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.
