Go-Ahead Group, First Group and National Express have all achieved a strong score in the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) for its disclosure on greenhouse gas emissions and climate change strategies.
The three operators all received B scores in the report, while Stagecoach received a C and Arriva did not participate.
Go-Ahead Group Corporate Communications Director, Sarah Boundy, said: “Reducing our impact on climate change is important to us – and the continuous efforts of colleagues across our bus and rail divisions have contributed to this strong CDP result.
“Earlier this year we consulted stakeholders and there was agreement about the importance of this issue and we will ensure it remains a key area of focus for the future. Our corporate responsibility goes beyond reducing carbon emissions and we work with industry partners to keep improving across the board.”
The Carbon watchdog, CDP, explained that by recognising tangible business benefits of disclosure and action, companies are raising their ambitions and taking meaningful steps to address climate change, deforestation and water security.
The CDP is a comprehensive assessment of global data undertaken on behalf of more than 800 institutional investors, representing US$100 trillion.
