Delta Air Lines Releases 2009 Corporate Responsibility Report


Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) has detailed its environmental, safety and community performance over the past two years with its 2009 Corporate Responsibility Report, now available at
        The report is the first overview of the airline’s corporate responsibility efforts since Delta’s merger with Northwest Airlines.
        "This report makes it clear that we have an ongoing, everyday commitment to the environment, the communities we serve, the safety of our employees and customers and to holding ourselves to the highest ethical standards," said Helen Howes, Delta’s managing director – Safety Health and Environment. "We’re proud of the progress we’ve made, but are also committed to achieving even more in the months and years ahead."
        Milestones highlighted in the 2009 report include:
        • A reduction in annual CO2 emissions of 16.5 million metric tons since 2000 – the equivalent of taking more than 2.9 million passenger cars off the road for a year.
        • The implementation of the industry’s first comprehensive in-flight recycling program, which diverted more than 2,000 tons of waste from landfills.
        • A companywide recycling program that captured 58 percent of the two million pounds of non-hazardous waste generated by the airline in 2009, a 22 percent improvement compared with 2007.
        • A 10 percent improvement in Delta’s occupational injury and illness rate. Delta also operates 12 workplace locations nationwide that have achieved "Star Status" awarded by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Voluntary Protection Program.
        • A continued partnership with Habitat for Humanity International in Delta’s hub and key cities, with more than 2,200 employees involved in building houses in Atlanta, Cincinnati, Detroit, Memphis, New York and Chiang Mai, Thailand.
