Delta’s Accelerated Sustainability Flight Plan

Beyond the pure wonder of it, air travel shatters barriers that once seemed insurmountable. It brings together people and cultures from the furthest corners of the world, broadening our collective experiences and building understanding. At Delta, we see travel as a noble force for good – and the miracle of flight is helping us to better understand the far-reaching impacts of climate change.

Aviation continues to make technological advancements, yet the need for jet propulsion and fossil fuels makes it among the most challenging sectors to decarbonize. The very core of our business – flying – accounts for 98% of an airline’s carbon footprint.

This is the challenge that inspired my decision earlier this year to join Delta as Chief Sustainability Officer. Working with the Delta Team to create a sustainable future offers a compelling challenge and an opportunity to lead meaningful change. The solutions we develop will help define the next century of air travel.
