Managing our environmental impacts.
We are committed to working in partnership with our stakeholders and partners to mitigate the impact of climate change
At National Express we recognise we have an important role in enabling and delivering climate change strategies, both in terms of vehicles and sites.
Although we have a global fleet of around 29,000 vehicles, we continue to significantly reduce our carbon emissions through a combination of cultural commitment to improvement, capital investment and research into pioneering fuel efficiency technologies.
Across seven countries we have a series of carbon intensity reduction programmes linked to energy and water use in our buildings and the broader supply chain to help mitigate our static emissions.
In 2017, our success in continuing to curb our own emissions was demonstrated with external recognition in the areas of voluntary carbon and water reporting, climate change leadership and environmental excellence.
We are determined to continually improve the extent and accuracy of our data and reporting with robust data collection providing a fully consistent set of data for 2017 and 2016 even across water consumption data which has proven challenging in the past. We are pleased to continue to perform well in external rankings such as the CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) . National Express achieved a ‘B’ grade for our Climate Change disclosure for 2017 indicating high score in CDP’s Disclosure, Climate Change Awareness and Management categories. We also gained a ‘C’ grade for our water disclosure and continue to work to minimise our operational water use.
