"To decarbonize aviation, we need to develop the right technology building blocks and a dynamic hydrogen ecosystem," said Julie Kitcher, executive vice president of Airbus Communications and corporate relations. "By working closely with key partners like Delta, we will combine the expertise and specific needs of our customers to ensure that our zero-emission aircraft are a game-changer in a sustainable aerospace industry."
This program builds on Delta Flight to Net Zero's ongoing efforts through coalitions that seek to bring the next chapter of aviation to life. Getting to Net Zero requires a holistic approach to decarbonization and collaboration in all corners of the industry. The announcement builds on Delta's recent investment through its pension plans in the TPG Rise Climate fund, which focuses on supporting climate solutions at scale. Delta also joined the First Movers Coalition, a public-private partnership and platform designed to accelerate and scale the development of advanced climate technologies.
