East Midlands Trains is using the fourth annual Stagecoach Group Green Week to celebrate its environmental achievements so far.
During the week-long programme of events, East Midlands Trains will encourage employees and customers to further drive forward the green agenda with a series of activities taking place across its network from 21-25 May.
The rail company, part of Stagecoach Group, is currently in the third year of a five-year Group-wide plan to reduce its carbon footprint.
Green Week aims to raise awareness of environmental issues among staff and passengers through a series of events.
The following activities will take place throughout Green Week on the East Midlands Trains network:
East Midlands Trains Managing Director David Horne said: “Green Week is now an established and important part of our efforts to protect the environment and become a more sustainable business. But we know the global challenge we all face on climate change is not just about what we do during this week, but how we make a difference every day of the year. That's why we will continue to work hard to encourage our staff and help our customers to adopt greener lifestyles.”
East Midlands Trains’ green initiatives include:
Stagecoach Group announced earlier this year that it has retained the prestigious Carbon Trust Standard after taking tough action on carbon reduction. The Group has shown a significant improvement in carbon efficiency over the two year certification period, since its initial certification was awarded, and during the same period the company also cut its emissions on an absolute basis in the UK overall.
In 2010, Stagecoach launched Revolution in the Way We Travel, a five-year plan to reduce further the carbon emissions from its transport operations in the UK and North America. Stagecoach Group is targeting an overall reduction of 8% in carbon emissions from buildings and a cut of 3% in carbon emissions from annual fleet transport by April 2014. Specific stretching targets have been set for each of its bus and rail businesses, supported by an £11million green investment programme.
Stagecoach Group has so far made good progress in reducing its carbon footprint. The Group reduced carbon emissions relative to the turnover of its UK businesses by 5.6% in the two years to 30 April 2011 as a result of a package of measures designed to make the Group more sustainable. This reduction followed a 5.7% carbon efficiency improvement in the three years to 30 April 2009*.
*Stagecoach reports annually on its carbon emissions through its corporate website, www.stagecoach.com, and also provides information on its global carbon footprint to the Carbon Disclosure Project, the world’s largest corporate greenhouse gas emissions database.
