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.
