Delta Cargo launches SAF programme

news item image
Delta Cargo has launched a Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) programme to help grow the supply and availability of the ‘green’ fuel.
This programme will help cargo customers reduce their environmental footprint and create a more sustainable future.
Bio-based jet fuel production is a renewable process and can reduce life cycle emissions up to 75% compared to fossil fuel. Through customised contributions to the Delta Cargo SAF programme, freight forwarders and shippers can attain their sustainability goals.
In 2020, Delta became the first carbon neutral airline on a global basis - committing to carbon neutrality from March 2020 onward, balancing its emissions with investments to remove carbon across our global operations.
Recently, Delta joined the First Movers Coalition, a coalition spearheaded by the US State Department and the World Economic Forum designed to accelerate and scale the development of breakthrough technologies and fuels, helping hard-to-abate sectors, like aviation, reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This partnership is the latest in a series of commitments that Delta has made to achieve its sustainability goals, which include agreeing to set science-based targets in line with the Paris Agreement and joining the United Nation's global Race to Zero campaign.
These commitments compliment the company's existing 10% SAF procurement goal by the end of 2030, ensuring that half of our SAF comes from feedstocks that achieve the lowest lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions.
Delta Cargo's SAF programme is certified and audited by Ruby Canyon Environmental, an expert in greenhouse gas emissions accounting and our SAF is International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) certified.
The programme also offers flexible purchase options to make it easy for customers to purchase SAF and achieve their sustainability goals.
