Risks and opportunities


Delta receives a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. Delta is projected to greatly exceed its carbon budget for 2021-2035. Although the company is increasing the amount of SAF used in its fuel mix and is working in partnership with manufacturers and corporate clients to reach 10% SAF by 2030, this is not sufficient. The company needs to reduce its emissions intensity by approximately 3.8% per year to align with its 1.5°C pathway. It should also reduce the offsets it intends to use to achieve its targets.
