ATLANTA, GA- Delta Air Lines has penned a multi-year sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) agreement with CTM that will last for three years.

Following the agreement, this partnership will lower lifecycle emissions by 209 metric tons of carbon dioxide—that amount is equivalent to the carbon sequestered by 256 acres of US forests.

This alliance is the first multi-year SAF commitment for Delta. It also develops on the growing list of travel management firms as well as corporate partners. Those firms and partners share in Delta’s commitment to supporting the future of sustainable air travel.

In addition, through this collaboration, 300,000 gallons of SAF have been bought, with this purchase life-cycle emissions that were produced by Delta operations will be reduced by 2,100 metric tons.

“These partnerships are a core driver for decreasing the aviation industry’s reliance on conventional jet fuel and encouraging the economic viability of SAF by building industry demand and supply,” said Delta’s Amelia DeLuca, Managing Director – Sustainability.

“The collective impact we are making with our corporate partners delivers real change for the industry,” added DeLuca.

Delta has the vision to reach zero-impact aviation in the future, therefore, Deltas' first step is to resolve carbon dioxide emissions, as carbon is the largest impact on the environment. To resolve the problem, Delta is investing in SAF, the readily available resources that can make a difference.

“CTM is committed to developing and supporting initiatives that provide practical and sustainable benefits to businesses, the environment and local communities,” said Kevin O’Malley, Chief Executive Officer of Corporate Travel Management North America.

“We are proud to take this next long-term step alongside Delta in supporting the lasting sustainability of our planet by reducing the impact of business travel on the environment,” added O'Malley.
