Our approach to sustainability

For Go-Ahead, sustainability means operating our business in a way that ensures it is viable for the long term.

Our shareholders expect us to make good decisions that contribute to the long term sustainability of the organisation and deliver the best possible service to our customers.

As one of the UK’s largest providers of public transport, Go-Ahead plays a vital role in underpinning social and economic activity in the communities where we operate. Bus and rail travel are also an answer to congestion and air quality issues. By providing essential bus and rail services internationally, we help people connect and get where they want to go, enabling access to education, retail and employment.

Our materiality assessment

Sustainability strategy

At Go-Ahead we have created a sustainability strategy that outlines the five business areas where we can have the biggest positive impact.

Over the past year we have further integrated sustainability into our business and have selected five UN Sustainable Development Goals to focus on. 

We produce sustainability reports for all our companies and have improved our environmental social governance disclosure to investors through leading scores in corporate submissions.
