At Delta, we know that reducing our impact on the environment will improve the sustainability of our planet as well as our business. When it comes to air travel, jet fuel is by far the biggest source of carbon emissions. In fact, it makes up more than 98.5 percent of our total carbon footprint.
In addition to improving fuel-saving measures by ordering new, more efficient planes, adding winglets, and streamlining operations, we partner with programs, like the Nature Conservancy®, that strive to stop deforestation and promote alternative energy. Delta is committed to protecting the environment and producing measurable benefits to protect the atmosphere.
