Delta unveils strategy for net-zero emissions by 2050

March 15, 2023 |

In Atlanta, Delta announced its roadmap to more sustainable travel and net-zero emissions by 2050. The airline said that the reduction of fossil fuels and an evolution to SAF is at the forefront of the airline’s mid-term strategy. Delta’s sustainability strategy also accounts for near-term goals, including minimizing Delta’s impact from single-use plastic, transitioning to electric ground service equipment, and encouraging vendors in its supply chain on their own sustainability plans. “SAF is the most promising lever known today to accelerate progress toward a net zero future – it can use the existing fuel infrastructure to get it to airports and is safe to use in current aircraft engines. Unfortunately, there isn’t enough SAF today to fuel an airline Delta’s size for a single day. Delta is working to build demand, attract investment and encourage incentives to scale the market so all airlines can access more sustainable fuels. To date, the company has secured 200 million gallons of SAF offtakes and has approximately 50 corporate customers signed on to their sustainable fuel agreements,” the company said.
