Get empowered to drive forward the sustainable change at Lufthansa Group.


As Green Mobility Trainee, you will work on different Lufthansa Group companies of your own choice. Gain the key skills that are needed to make the sustainable transformation happen.

The Lufthansa Group has contributed to the progress of the aviation industry. Now we want to lead it into a sustainable future. Collaboration across the industry will be key to creating that fundamental shift.

We are looking for talented people who think in integrated solutions and master diverse challenges. We have joined forces and designed a program to equip talents with exactly these skills.


To achieve our ambitious goal of becoming carbon-neutral by 2050 and cutting our net carbon emissions in half by 2030 compared to 2019, the Lufthansa Group is continuously implementing a wide range of innovative measures.

Modern Fleet

Fuel-saving air-crafts are currently the most effective lever for more climate-friendly flying.

New Fuels

Replacing fossil fuels with Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) is the key to CO₂ neutral aviation.

OPS Efficiency

Optimizing flight operations on a daily basis helps to further reduce CO₂, and make flying more climate-friendly.


To reach net-zero carbon emissions, travelers must also be able to contribute. Simple and visible offers for CO₂-neutral flying are essential to this.


Railways and airlines should not compete but complement each other. Linking trains and flights intelligently protects the climate.


For aviation, sustainability not only means less CO₂, but also less waste and single-use plastic.
