Delta drives environmental sustainability on the ground and in the air

Published on : Thursday, December 3, 2015

DELTALOGOOver the next two weeks, world leaders are gathering in Paris for the Conference of Parties (COP) 21 to continue negotiating implementation of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), an international environmental treaty, and are expected to agree on a landmark deal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. While a separate United Nations agency, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) is responsible for addressing international aviation emissions. This focus on climate change sets the stage for ongoing conversations around Delta and the aviation industry’s environmental sustainability commitment.


According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the aviation industry contributes 3.4 percent of global domestic product, while being responsible for 2 percent of total global emissions. Innovative programs and efficiency improvements have successfully separated emissions from traffic growth as more and more passengers take to the skies. Additionally, the world’s airlines have cut the amount of CO2 emitted per passenger per kilometer in half since 1990.
