Environmental and Social Responsibility

We at Hahnair commit to assuming responsibility for our impact on the environment and on society. We therefore believe that it is our duty to invest in a sustainable future and support social projects benefitting our local community and people in need around the world.

Our initiatives

Hahnair forests in Kenya and Madagascar

To mitigate climate change, Hahnair partners with veritree, a technology platform enabling and tracking global restoration projects. Hahnair committed to restoring coastal mangrove forests in Kenya and Madagascar by planting 150,000 trees which equals an area of 15 hectares (37 acres). The Hahnair tree population, once matured, will sequester for an average of 32,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide.

In addition to reducing the carbon footprint of our own flights, our goal is to meanwhile offset the carbon emissions of our flight operations.To contribute to a more sustainable air transport, we are also looking into solutions for our travel agency and airline partners. It is our declared goal to offer carbon compensation options for flights distributed through Hahnair in the future.

Sustainability focus of office operations

Hahnair is engaging in a number of sustainability initiatives designed to reduce our carbon footprint. This involves reducing the carbon emissions caused by our office operations and our business travel activities. All employees together make an effort to make significant contributions to a more sustainable work-environment. We already reduced our office space, share desks, implemented a responsible heating concept and rely 100% on green energy.

In addition, we offer free loading stations for electric cars and a sustainable lunch concept. We are currently working on a new business travel scheme and are planning a yearly clean-up day with environment-focused activities on 16th of September each year. 

Hahnair Foundation

The Hahnair Foundation was founded by Hahnair in 2012. The Foundation’s mission is to support projects around the world that fight hardships such as poverty, oppression, hunger and disease, especially related to women and children. Hahnair ensures that 100% of all donations go to the Foundation’s supported projects.  

The projects supported by us are hand-picked. The objective is to support organisations which are managed by socially committed individuals with philanthropic intentions. In doing so, we ensure that the money flows directly to those who need it.  

Key focal points in the selection of our projects are, above all, improvements in education which are to help those affected find a way out of the vicious circle of poverty and social decline. Furthermore, we support issues including health, essential infrastructure, as well as microcredit organisations, the latter of which is particularly for women.
