Minneapolis, 3 June, 2021: CWT, the Business-to-Business-for-Employees (B2B4E) travel management platform, today announces its partnership with Delta Air Lines on an agreement to purchase enough sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to cover the projected fuel usage from all of CWT’s travelers on Delta on 5 June, World Environment Day.
“Actions speak louder than words, and we are delighted to further cement both our wide-reaching partnership with Delta and our commitment to responsible business, in such an innovative and public initiative.” said Patrick Andersen, CWT’s Chief Commercial Officer.
The agreement underscores CWT’s commitment to environmental stewardship, a core part of its strategy, culture and consulting activities as a U.N Global Compact signatory since 2012.
The agreement is part of Delta’s Flight to Net Zero initiative that encompasses the company’s industry-leading global carbon neutral goal. It also represents new initiatives, products and standards that will advance clean air travel and accelerate the reduction of carbon emissions.
“Our strong sustainability partnership with CWT helps to drive the industry forward to a more environmentally-sound future,” said Steve Sear, Delta’s Executive Vice President of Global Sales, “and underscores a conceptual alignment within the travel industry to proactively find solutions for the carbon footprint created by travel.”
