DELTA’S FORCE FOR GLOBAL GOOD

 

We travel to over 300 destinations across six continents. Which means the world is our community. And we’ll continue to do our part to make it a better place for everyone.

FORCE FOR GLOBAL GOOD

ADVANCING GLOBAL DIVERSITY

Delta is a global airline. And we’re proud to embrace global diversity in people, in thinking and in styles. Our culture is one of global inclusion and represents people of all languages, ethnicities, cultures, gender identification, races, ages, sexual orientation, educations, religions, work experiences, family status, capabilities, political views, geographical and regional identification, values, skills, personalities, education, citizenship status, socioeconomic backgrounds, community memberships and even communication styles. It’s these differences that help strengthen and define us.

To further our support for the advancement of global diversity, we proudly sponsor the United Negro College Fund, the Dr. Joseph Lowery Scholarship at Morehouse University, Pride celebrations in New York, Atlanta, and Minneapolis as well as our featured causes.

CARE understands that working with women is one of the most efficient ways to make a difference for poor communities. When a woman feels empowered, she has the courage to fight for lasting change. She cares for herself, nurtures her children and wisely invests in her family. When you support CARE, you are making a wise investment, as well. Ninety percent of expended resources goes to poverty-fighting programs. Last year, CARE helped 55 million people in 66 countries change their lives for the better.

IMPROVING THE ENVIRONMENT

Delta is committed to preventing pollution wherever possible. When prevention is not an option, Delta establishes mitigation programs to minimize its environmental impact. Delta continually evaluates emerging technology for new options to reduce its environmental footprint. This includes reducing and recycling operational waste, increasing aircraft fuel efficiency, evaluating alternative fuels, electrifying equipment and providing customers with opportunities for offsetting actions to counteract the effects of greenhouse gas emissions.

Launched in 2007, Delta's comprehensive in-flight recycling program collects and diverts aluminum cans, plastic beverage cups, plastic bottles, newspaper and magazines from landfills in 26 U.S. airports. Passengers, flight attendants, catering staff and cabin services successfully recycled approximately 1,108,000 pounds of material in 2010 and donated $35,797 through Delta's Force for Global Good to Habitat for Humanity.

Delta has had an on-site Employee Recycling Center at the World Headquarters offices in Atlanta since 2007. The center was created to provide recycling services to those living in communities with a limited ability to recycle materials generated at home.

In 2010, the Employee Recycling Center recycled approximately 1,198,000 pounds of material, including 9,320 pounds of aluminum cans, 23,200 pounds of plastics, 147,340 pounds of mixed paper, 617,000 pounds of cardboard, 85,520 pounds of office paper, 6,120 pounds of comingled material and 9,100 pounds of tin cans.

In 2007 Delta became the first airline to launch a carbon offset program—today, the airline works with The Nature Conservancy to offer passengers the opportunity to voluntarily offset the carbon emissions they incur on their flight through an online calculator accessible when they purchase tickets. The Tensas River Basin Project in the Lower Mississippi River Valley, funded in part by a $1 million donation by Delta Air Lines, was the first project in the program and is part of the Conservancy's forest carbon initiative. The project has allowed the reforestation of 406.3 acres, which over time will sequester a net of 83,705 metric tons of carbon dioxide. Money raised through voluntary carbon offsets purchased by passengers (which will be retired by the Conservancy on their behalf), as well as matching funds by Delta Air Lines during Earth Month, was directed to the project, and through 2012 added almost $275,000 to this initiative.

Having achieved success at Tensas River, the project has been retired from the Voluntary Carbon Offset Program in order to provide donors an opportunity to support new carbon offset projects where financial support is currently more urgently needed. In 2012, Delta Air Lines renewed their commitment to provide passengers the opportunity to offset their flight emissions using a new Conservancy project to generate carbon offsets, the Rio Bravo Climate Action Project. The Rio Bravo Climate Action Project is a partnership between The Nature Conservancy and Programme for Belize. The 6,296 hectare Avoided Planned Deforestation project, located in north-west Belize, reduces GHG emissions through the acquisition and protection of forest lands threatened by agricultural conversion. The project achieved successful verification of 1,660,260 carbon offsets in 2011.

Additionally, in 2013, Delta enrolled a new Conservancy project, located in the Appalachian Mountains, into the Voluntary Carbon Offset Program. The Clinch Valley Conservation Forestry Program protects and manages 22,000 acres of working forestlands in the rural countryside of southwestern Virginia. These forests support iconic wildlife species like black bear, provide clean water for people and globally rare aquatic species, and sustain local timber jobs and economies. On Rich Mountain Farm, one of the nation’s oldest continually operated cattle ranches, the Conservancy’s improved forest management on nearly 6,000 acres has thus far sequestered more than 150,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide.

PROMOTING ARTS & CULTURE

Art and culture are what make many of the destinations that we fly to each and every day truly unique and special. Delta celebrates, supports and promotes art and culture by partnering with organizations, museums and exhibits around the world, including the National Black Arts Festival, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Tribeca Film Festival, the Minnesota Orchestra, the High Museum of Art, the Guthrie Theater and the Fox Theater.

Delta received the Corporation of the Year Award from the Georgia Association of Museums and Galleries. We’re very proud of this honor.
