DB: Fifty percent less CO2 emitted by 2030

Published by:

(Berlin, October 23, 2017) DB sets new climate protection target ahead of UN Climate Change Convention in Bonn • DB’s CEO Lutz: “Rail travel equals climate protection”

Deutsche Bahn has set itself a new, ambitious climate protection target. “By 2030 we will have reduced specific CO2 emissions worldwide by at least fifty percent. This is a major step toward becoming a completely climate-neutral group, which we will be in 2050,” said Dr. Richard Lutz, Chairman of the Management Board and CEO of Deutsche Bahn, in Berlin ahead of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change taking place in Bonn on November 6-17, 2017. “Rail travel equals climate protection. Rail is already the most climate-friendly mode of transport and we are continuing to expand this environmental advantage. Nothing less than the future of successive generations is at stake. That is why we are amplifying our efforts and responding actively to climate change and its impact.”

The next milestone is being targeted by DB Long Distance, in that every passenger will travel using 100 percent renewable power on and after January 1, 2018. As a result, some 140 million passengers annually will travel entirely CO2-free. Previously, this was only the case for holders of BahnCards or monthly and annual passes and passengers who had paid an additional euro for green energy on each leg of their journey. Since 2013, DB Long Distance has invested around 100 million euros in sustainable wind and hydroelectric power purchased in addition to regular energy. Deutsche Bahn intends to increase the share of power it uses from renewable sources in all of its rail operations (local, regional, long distance and freight), from 42 percent currently to 70 percent by 2030.

When disaster hit Texas, Fla., Caribbean, Mexico, Delta people rushed to help

Published by:

Sep. 27, 2017 – Delta proudly supports the communities where the company’s 80,000 employees live, work and serve. That commitment grows even stronger when those communities are thrown into crisis.

Such has been the case with three massive hurricanes devastating Houston and the Gulf coast; much of Florida; and islands across the Caribbean; and multiple earthquakes smashing Mexican homes and cities.

In response, Delta Air Lines, its Cargo division, the Delta Foundation and the company’s employees have mobilized like never before: partnering with the American Red Cross and other experienced non-profits, contributing $3.75 million, operating relief flights filled with thousands of pounds of water, generators, baby food and other supplies; and adding dozens of flights to evacuate tens of thousands of people to safety.
