The ECO Stars Fleet Recognition Scheme was launched in East Lothian on 15 February to provide recognition for best operational practices and encourage fleet operators to make improvements, with the ultimate aim of reducing fuel consumption and emissions.
The East Coast Buses fleet was assessed under this scheme by an industry expert, and we were delighted to be awarded three stars based on our current operational and environmental performance.
Emma Roy, Environmental Officer said:
To be recognised by the ECO Stars scheme is a great achievement for East Coast Buses which has been in operation for just over six months. We remain committed to reducing emissions in our operational environment and supporting air quality improvements.
