East Midlands Trains is focusing on energy reduction as part of Stagecoach Group’s fifth annual Group-wide Green Week programme next week.
To mark the campaign, the train company is planning a series of events between 3 and 7 June.
During the week-long programme of activities, East Midlands Trains will encourage employees and customers to continue driving forward the green agenda.
This year’s Stagecoach Green Week incorporates World Environment Day on Wednesday 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 Group’s 35,000 employees in the UK and North America have significant environmental achievements to celebrate during Green Week.
The Group has delivered its current five-year targets 12 months ahead of schedule, achieving an overall absolute reduction of 8% in carbon emissions from buildings and a cut of 3% in annual carbon emissions per vehicle mile from fleet transport. Compared to the size of its global operations, Stagecoach has cut the carbon impact (kg CO2 per £ of turnover) of its business in the UK and North America by more than 20% in the past four years.
Earlier this year, figures compiled as part of the Government’s Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Energy Efficiency Scheme showed that Stagecoach Group is among the top 10% of large companies in the UK for its performance in reducing the carbon emissions from its business.
The Group’s strategy has been supported by an £11million green investment programme. Employee initiatives and eco teams set up by staff have also helped drive dramatic improvements in energy and carbon efficiency. Last year, Stagecoach Group also retained the prestigious Carbon Trust Standard for its action on carbon reduction.
To maintain the momentum of the Group’s programme, work is now underway to develop a new five-year strategy. This will include identifying further cost-effective energy-saving opportunities, continuing investment to make the business greener, and setting new targets around carbon reduction and water consumption.
Green Week aims to raise awareness of environmental issues among staff and passengers through a series of events. At East Midlands Trains, the following activities will be held for staff and customers:
East Midlands Trains Managing Director David Horne said: “We have achieved a great deal over several years in reducing the environmental impact of our operations and that is all down to the hard work of our staff.
“There is a lot more we still want to achieve and Green Week helps us to continue the momentum. We will also continue to work hard all year round to attract more people to public transport as well as taking further steps to become a more sustainable business ourselves.”
Stagecoach Group initiatives underway include:
Every year, Stagecoach reports on its carbon emissions through its corporate website, www.stagecoach.com. It also provides information on its global carbon footprint to the Carbon Disclosure Project, the world’s largest corporate greenhouse gas emissions database.
