Sustainability Information

Across both our administrative and operational departments, we strive to save energy, recycle and repurpose any waste we can.


For starters, every single office has a recycling bin. If our teams aren’t recycling paper they’re shredding it, to then be recycled. To reduce plastic, we have water coolers on site so staff can re-use water bottles and our Human Resources department aim to email staff where possible over sending letters.


As a business, we reuse everything we can big and small; from general office equipment to collecting and donating used batteries and postage stamps and we have redistributed materials to be used elsewhere. For example, our Archivist has given purpose to old pallets as storage to our historic files.


We even re-use the vehicle wash by adding cleaning agents and a filter so it can be used again, saving us hundreds of thousands of gallons of water each year.


Across the business, we’ve fitted LED lighting in the offices and garages which is much more environmentally friendly and uses less power.


The Heritage team give the public a chance to own historic bus memorabilia, like bus blinds and ticket machines, usually these parts will be thrown away.


We also take our carbon footprint seriously and source almost all our inventory from local businesses. Anything from office stationery to nuts and bolts is bought from suppliers in the area or at least the UK. Not only does this reduce emissions but it supports local business.
