Delta Plans To Go Carbon Neutral

Perhaps you can soon worry less about the environmental impact caused by taking a flight. At least if you book on Delta.

The airline announced that it would kick off a decade long initiative in March to cut its emissions, which averages 40 million metric tons of carbon dioxide annually.

Delta wants to become the first US airline to go carbon neutral, putting a $1 billion commitment towards updating its fleet with more fuel-efficient planes, plus investing in carbon-capture technologies.

Last month, JetBlue pledged to become carbon-neutral on domestic flights by 2050.
