Certification goals

The company wanted to take the lead by showing we can all work towards reducing our impact on the environment.

As part of the transport industry, they recognise that the carbon footprint of the business cannot be reduced to zero. However, by actively finding ways to reduce the carbon footprint and offsetting what cannot be reduced, the company is contributing to a better future for our natural world.

Their certification includes all bus and coach charter services as well as the Blue Mountains Explorer Bus daily tourist service.

Customers can feel positive about their holiday choice, knowing that when they ride the red double decker bus, they are making an environmentally positive decision.

“Climate Active is very important to us operating within a World Heritage National Park. It enables us to understand how our actions affect the natural environment and try to reduce our impacts.”

To achieve certification, Fantastic Aussie Tours and Blue Mountains Explorer Bus calculated its fuel emissions, on-site energy usage such as water and electricity, consumables, marketing materials, waste, fleet maintenance, staff commute and the lifecycle emissions of each bus in its fleet from manufacture to disposal.
