  • Replacing company vehicles with low or zero emission models only.
  • Implemented an Enhanced Washing System, using rainwater to clean estate and reducing water usage by 50% per wash.
  • Introducing 100% recyclable bus shelters and solar-powered courtesy lighting.
  • Installing Living Roofs and Vertical Meadows to promote biodiversity.
  • We funded five Edible Playgrounds and launched 11 Local Innovation Funds to invest in environmental projects.
05  Collaboration
Trees for Cities

Working with our partners

Beyond our operations and estate, we have been spearheading environmental initiatives in the communities in which we operate, investing in eco projects that make a difference, volunteering to improve the environment and supporting the vital work of our charity partners.  

In a collaboration with Trees for Cities we have planted over 400 trees in urban areas, bringing real benefits and a lasting legacy to our communities. Trees are a vital part of liveable cities by improving flood defense, cleaning pollutants from the air, creating green spaces that promote mental wellbeing and promoting biodiversity.

We’re also proud partners of the charity Keep Britain Tidy and our teams have been regularly participating in their Great British Spring Clean. In 2021 over 20% of our people took part across 20+ locations and spent 250+ hours litter picking.
