Thriving Communities. Thriving Landscapes. Action and impact are core to Delta as we strive to create a Midwest and Great Lakes region with a healthy environment, robust economy, and vibrant communities. Delta creates programs that show how policies, ideas, and resources can be harnessed for a more sustainable and resilient region. We take a systems view on how businesses, communities, and government and are impacted by the environment and economy, and create comprehensive solutions that pull these pieces together. Delta is proud to have a multidisciplinary team, and we strive to attract a diversity of experience, skillsets, and perspectives to enable us to challenge assumptions and create new approaches to long-standing problems.
Impact Statement: By 2025, Delta will directly support 1,000 farmers as they transition to sustainable and regenerative practices, thus improving the environment, mitigating the impacts of climate change, and strengthening a farmer’s bottom line; 1M Midwestern acres will successfully transition.
Theory of Change: Delta is expanding conservation practices to farms— both independent and commodity—throughout the Midwest via practical, feasible implementation that are grounded in science and are proven to sequester carbon while mitigating financial risk to farmers.
