SCS Global Services Verifies Delta Air Lines' Carbon Footprint - A First Among Legacy Airlines

EMERYVILLE, Calif., Dec. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SCS Global Services (SCS) has verified the carbon footprint of Delta Air Lines, making it the world's first legacy airline to achieve a successful, independent third party verification of its greenhouse gas emissions inventory. SCS confirmed Delta's conformance with The Climate Registry's General Reporting Protocol, one of the world's most trusted methodologies for measuring greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.


"Delta is taking a leadership role in the aviation sector by setting a baseline for its GHG emissions and committing to reduce these emissions," said Dr. Robert J. Hrubes, Executive Vice President of SCS Global Services. "We conducted a rigorous audit of Delta's GHG emissions, which included jet fuel combustion, electricity usage, refrigerants and other emission sources."

As part of the verification, the SCS team visited Delta's operations and also conducted interviews with Delta personnel to verify that the correct methodologies were used to calculate the company's carbon footprint. By having its carbon footprint verified by SCS, Delta has assured that its footprint measurement is of high quality, transparent, and credible. Membership in The Climate Registry gives Delta access to guidance in measuring its carbon inventory and access to the Climate Registry's online calculation and reporting tools. The company is now eligible to use the Climate RegisteredTM logo and will be recognized on the Climate Registry's website.

"We've made significant strides to reduce our GHG emissions and are pleased to now be a part of an organization that verifies and validates our commitment," said Ken Hylander, Delta's Senior Vice President of Corporate Safety, Security & Compliance. "Increased transparency is a significant part of Delta's efforts to build a business model that continually improves sustainability over the long term, which is why we support consistent and transparent standards to calculate, verify and publicly report greenhouse gas emissions."

Having received a positive verification statement in October for historic emission years 2005-2010, Delta is now pursuing verification of its 2011 greenhouse gas inventory.  Delta is the second carrier worldwide to meet the requirements of the registry, joining Virgin America in achieving verification.

SCS Global Services (SCS) (formerly Scientific Certification Systems) has been providing global leadership in third-party environmental and sustainability certification, auditing, testing, and standards development for nearly 30 years. Its programs span a wide cross-section of industries, recognizing achievements in green building, product manufacturing, food and agriculture, forestry, retail, and more.  SCS provides accredited services under a wide range of internationally recognized certification programs.  SCS is a chartered benefit corporation and Certified B Corp™, reflecting its commitment to socially and environmentally responsible business practices.

The Climate Registry is a nonprofit collaboration among North American states, provinces, territories and Native Sovereign Nations that sets consistent and transparent standards to calculate, verify and publicly report greenhouse gas emissions into a single registry.
