Stagecoach Green Week to focus on innovation

Stagecoach Group’s eighth annual sustainability drive (30 May-3 June) is to focus on innovation, with staff and customers encouraged to drive forward ideas.

A series of customer, community and employee initiatives are aimed to raise environmental awareness.

Stagecoach’s annual Green Week programme has the theme ‘Green Sky Thinking’ to encourage further environmental innovation.

It precedes World Environment Day on Sunday 5 June – a widely celebrated global day for positive environmental action, when people from all walks of life can come together to ensure a cleaner, greener outlook for future generations.

Stagecoach’s environmental track record includes the launch of the UK’s first Bio-buses in 2007 and the country’s first on-site bus depot bio-blender in 2011. Stagecoach has introduced regenerative braking on many of its trains, delivered innovative energy management systems at its bus and rail depots, and has led the way on the introduction of buses running on alternative fuels including hybrid-electric vehicles, gas buses and hydrogen buses.

It follows a 30% reduction in Stagecoach Group’s carbon intensity since 2007-08 and the achievement of previous targets 12 months ahead of schedule.
