Delta’s Commitment to Sustainability

According to a Barron’s study published this year that rated 1,000 companies in five key categories: shareholders, employees, customers, environment and community, Delta is one of America’s 100 most sustainable companies, coming in at No. 27 on the list – and the No. 1 U.S. airline.

In reflection of their commitment to sustainability in these areas, Delta has shared this video which highlights the areas they are making a difference in. For example:

  • Reducing their carbon footprint by 50% by 2050 compared to 2005
  • Being the only US airline to cap their carbon emissions at 2012 levels
  • Reducing single use plastics on flights, including an on-board recycling programme, with rebates used to fund homes through Habitat for Humanity
  • Donating 1% of annual net profits to charitable causes ($50m in 2018)
