We successfully achieved the Carbon Trust Standard after taking steps to reduce our carbon footprint at our Birmingham headquarters.
The Carbon Trust award shows that we have taken real action on climate change by reducing our carbon emissions.
It is great recognition for our achievements in carbon reduction and demonstrates our commitment to reducing carbon emissions year on year and it shows that we are taking action ourselves by reducing the carbon emissions that we are directly responsible for.
The Carbon Trust Standard requires the organisation to keep reducing its carbon emissions and to re certify every two years.

We became the first regional transport authority to sign a declaration on climate change. The 'Nottingham Declaration' addresses the challenge of tackling global warming and we are working towards curbing climate change through promoting more sustainable forms of transport, and by monitoring our operations as an organisation.
