Although we are just two months into 2020, it is clear that this year will be dominated by ESG conversations as companies across all industries look to make their operations more sustainable and environmentally friendly. The airline industry is no exception.
Today, air travel contributes around 2.5% of the world’s global emissions and could double by 2050.
Join Delta Air Line's CEO, Ed Bastian, for a conversation about the challenges ahead, how his airline is taking the lead with an ambitious plan to tackle carbon by driving innovation, advancing clean air travel technologies and accelerating the reduction of carbon emissions and waste through new projects— including the historic Global Goal Live campaign.
