World renowned conservationist, Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and United Nations Messenger of Peace, will be featured on In-Flight Entertainment and will visit Delta this month as the airline's latest partner and one who understands the importance of protecting the world that we all share.
Dr. Goodall's partnership and passion complement the company's sustainability efforts, as it works to explore new opportunities to lower its environmental impact.
Highlights from Delta's ongoing work include:
- Reducing carbon emissions by 50 percent by 2050
- Flying its first carbon-neutral flight over the summer
- Capping carbon emissions at 2012 levels by purchasing offsets
- Removing a variety of single-use plastic items from aircraft, amenity kits and Delta Sky Clubs
- Donating and upcycling retired uniforms
Serving as an advocate for the planet and its species for almost 60 years, she has helped us understand the importance of Delta's sustainability strategy and the difference that we can make not only in the airline industry, but across the globe.
JANE Documentary on Delta Studio
Starting this month, customers will be able to find National Geographic's Emmy-winning documentary about her early career, JANE, onboard Delta Studio* through the end of the year.
Drawing from over 100 hours of never-before-seen footage, the documentary shows how Jane's chimpanzee research challenged the male-dominated scientific consensus of her time and revolutionized our understanding of the natural world.
