National Express recognised as one of Europe’s Climate Leaders

National Express is delighted to be recognised in the Financial Times’ Europe’s Climate Leaders special report. Europe’s Climate Leaders 2022 ranks the top 400 European companies which have achieved the greatest reduction in their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions intensity.

The Company’s progress in this area follows a series of strategic decisions National Express has made to reduce emissions across the Group. The Company’s 2020 commitment, to never again buy a Diesel Bus in the UK, will see it achieve a 100% Zero Emission UK bus fleet by 2030, with the rest of the Group meeting a net zero target by 2040.

Ignacio Garat, CEO of National Express Group plc, said: “We are proud to be recognised for our progress in reducing emissions, and are excited to see these figures improve further as we accelerate our decarbonisation plans across the Group.

"Through the use of availability contracts we are able to finance the transition away from diesel and are on track to achieve a fully zero emission fleet by 2040. At the same time, the modal shift from cars to public transport is the single most important thing we can do to tackle climate change and we are delighted to  lead the way.”
