Measuring our Carbon Footprint

Transdev North America is committed to measuring all aspects of our environmental impact. This includes all the reporting and required audits mandated by local, state and national environmental regulations in each of our locations. It also includes measuring our emissions, carbon footprint, and progress on our sustainability initiatives. Our key annual measurements follow:

Annual Environmental Compliance Audits

This comprehensive and detailed internal audit gives each location the opportunity to review and report on its environmental status, practices, and records on an annual basis, helping to ensure that the property is compliant with federal, state, local, and company-wide environmental regulations and requirements.

After the submission of the local audit, a thorough corporate-level review occurs, where the environmental impact/risk is assessed for each audit. This is done using a standardized scoring system. The compliance audit is used to generate an action plan that identifies and addresses all discrepancies found during the line-by-line, item-by-item review.

The compliance audit is an effective and timely tool that provides a snapshot of our overall environmental and compliance “health,” and aids in identifying areas where immediate corrective action is needed, further investigation is warranted, or additional training is required. Ultimately, it assists both corporate and local staff in operating in accordance with applicable regulations, industry standards, environmentally responsible practices, and provides the information needed for comprehensive environmental management.

Measuring our Carbon Footprint

Transdev is committed to measuring and tracking our carbon footprint. In fact, all our operations around the world fill out a detailed questionnaire twice a year. This serves as the primary means of identifying and measuring our progress in sustainable development. Specific information tracked in these surveys includes all the key information and statistics about a contract, such as passenger trips/mile ratio, fuel efficiency by vehicle type in a fleet, water consumption/vehicle per year ratio, electrical consumption, and the like.

This information is used to calculate a carbon footprint of each location and then aggregated for the company as a whole. We use many of the detailed measurements as opportunities to celebrate advances from the prior survey, as well as to isolate where we can improve our performance for the next year.
