Getting the green light
“Destination Green demonstrates that Arriva is at the forefront of efforts to reduce carbon, both by encouraging more people to use public transport and by minimising its own environmental impact.”
Claire Haigh, Chief Executive, Greener Journeys
Arriva switched its electricity supplier to SSE Business Energy to supply its depots and offices in the UK with green electricity that’s fully backed by Renewable Electricity Guarantee of Origins*.
Our sites can also access SSE’s online energy monitoring portal to check consumption and follow energy-saving practices.
The volume of carbon we save each year is the same as that used by an average car driving over 95 million miles – or equal to powering around 25,000 homes with green electricity.
The initiative is part of our Europe-wide ‘Destination Green’ programme. It’s yet another way in which we’re reducing our environmental impact.
