The Go-Ahead Group plc has published its seventh Environmental & Social Report on-line at http://www.ethicalperformance.net/Goahead_report.html. Data and commentary has been independently assured by The Smart Company.

As one of the UK’s leading providers of public transport services we recognise that surface transport is part of the climate change mix, accounting for around a quarter of UK carbon emissions. However, public transport is also part of the solution as buses and trains can be up to 10 times more efficient per passenger journey than the private car.

Go-Ahead has always put environmental responsibility at the heart of its business. We have invested in the most modern bus fleet of the major operators - this year we were the first company in the UK to introduce buses powered by Euro V engines, setting a new high standard for environmental efficiency.

This focus has delivered results. An independent study by the TAS Partnership has again confirmed that Go-Ahead has the most environmentally friendly bus fleets in Britain – comparing performance against over 100 competitors.

This is the forth year the main report had been web based. It is complemented by a hard copy summary report. With a ‘devolved management’ ethos at the heart of Go-Ahead’s business model, each of our 13 businesses has published its own stand-alone hard copy summary report. These hard copy reports are available on-line as a PDF download.
