One step closer to sustainable business travel
Delta and Deloitte are one step closer to sustainable business travel, thanks to a sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) agreement covering a portion of Deloitte’s business travel.
Deloitte is one of Delta’s first corporate customers to purchase SAF facilitated by Delta. It is part of the airline’s longstanding commitment to work with customers to reach collective goals for the greater good of our planet.
By using SAF, the agreement represents a lifecycle emissions reduction of approximately 1,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide, equivalent to carbon sequestered by 1,306 acres of U.S. forests or 756 football fields in one year.
To power its SAF agreement with Deloitte, Delta entered into a separate SAF supply agreement with Neste, a leading producer of low emission, renewable fuel for aircraft. Neste’s SAF is made from sustainably sourced, renewable waste and residue materials, and it is a drop-in fuel that offers an immediate way to directly reduce lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions from aviation.
In the year since Delta announced its $1 billion commitment to carbon neutrality from March 2020 onward, the company remains focused on carbon reduction and removal and stakeholder engagement in an effort to ensure its operations are more sustainable. The collaboration with Deloitte represents one of the first of what the airline hopes will be many significant achievements for both areas. | More
