Go-Ahead has secured an energy management certificate after cutting carbon emissions by 70% over the past 10 years.
This certification makes Go-Ahead the first public transport group to achieve global recognition for all its bus and rail UK operations.
The award displays the group’s commitment to emissions reductions, ensuring a smaller carbon footprint and improving air quality.
The ISO 50001 landmark is a standard of excellence for energy management accredited by the International Standards Organisation, a un-endorsed body.
Go-Ahead launched the UK’s first ever air-filtering bus which improves air quality as it travels and in Southampton cleans the air 1.7 times a year to a height of 10 meters.
David Brown, CEO of Go-Ahead, said: “This is recognition of our drive to keep Go-Ahead at the forefront of emission reduction and represents a big step forward for the transport industry as a whole.
However, this is just the beginning. We are targeting a further 20% reduction by 2021 and we are confident of reaching this ambitious target.”
