Significant airborne emissions

Emissions To evaluate emissions, we use the emission factors from the German Environment Agency’s ProBas database. Where we deviate from this: for sulfur dioxide we use emission factors from our own measurements for kerosene; for nitrogen oxide and carbon monoxide from the operation of engines we use MTU-specific factors (average values from NOx and CO emissions according to the ICAO database for all engines tested by us for the climb out operating point). For indirect emissions we use specific, locally adjusted emission factors based on ProBas.

Minimum notice periods regarding operational changes

Germany: Agreements between the employer and the works council that are governed by collective agreements can be terminated with three months’ notice under Section 77 of the German Works Council Constitution Act (Betriebsverfassungsgesetz). As a rule, this is also laid down in the collective agreements. In cases in which the arbitration body’s decision can overrule an agreement between the works council and employer, the regulations governing the notice period remain valid until replaced. Also laid down in the collective agreements are the notice periods for the assertion of claims for employers as well as employees. In accordance with Polish law, in Poland this period is 3 working days for temporary contracts for replacement and 1–3 months for permanent contracts dependent on the length of the term of employment. Canada: 2 weeks. USA: 60 days for reduction of 50% or more of the workforce for companies with more than 100 employees.
