Stagecoach awarded Carbon Trust Standard
Stagecoach Group has been awarded the Carbon Trust Standard for its efforts in helping tackle climate change. The award follows an assessment by the Carbon Trust of the environmental performance of the Group’s businesses in the UK, mainland Europe and North America between 1 May 2013 and 30 April 2015. Assessors confirmed that, relative to the turnover of the Group’s business, Stagecoach has reduced its carbon impact by 11.9%. Stagecoach was first awarded the Carbon Trust Standard for its global operations in 2013 becoming the first public transport operator to have its performance certified outside of Europe. The Group has launched a new five year sustainability strategy, entitled ‘Shared responsibility, shared future’, which will see £1.3m spent on reducing its environmental footprint.
