sustainability practices across our
Delta is aligned with the goals of
the International Air Transport Association to reduce net aviation carbon emissions by 50 percent by 2050,
relative to 2005 levels; cap net international aviation carbon emissions
starting in 2020; and improve our
fuel efficiency an average of 1.5 percent annually from 2009 to 2020.
Our progress is probably most evident in the planes we fl y. Our leastefficient aircraft, including small 50seat jets and the jumbo Boeing 747,
are being retired from fleet
and replaced with far more efficient
aircraft that have a greatly reduced
impact on the environment.
Our recycling program continues
to grow, with more than 2,200 tons
collected on our aircraft over the
past three years. We also recycle at
airports and our Atlanta headquarters, and we donate rebates from our
recycling programs to Habitat for
Humanity and the Delta Employee
and Retiree Care Fund.
Our customers are increasingly
part of the solution, as well, with our
carbon offset program that we offer
to travelers in partnership with organizations that include The Nature
Conservancy. It gives our customers the option of directly offsett ing
carbon emissions every time they fly
This is only a sample of the extensive efforts we are making at Delta
to be a strong steward of the environment and a responsible global
citizen. More information is available in our annual Corporate Responsibility Report, which you can

Thank you for flying Delta.
