Bus Firm Stepping Green Credentials Up A Gear

Alexander Dennis, a leader in the development of low/zero emission transport technologies, is helping Scotland to meet its 80 per cent target to reduce emissions, First Minister Alex Salmond said today.
The First Minister was speaking as he visited the bus manufacturer's facility in Falkirk.

The visit followed Finance Secretary John Swinney's announcement earlier today that Scotland will lead international action in its response to climate change with an 80 per cent target to cut emissions including all six greenhouse gases.

The First Minister said:

"Alexander Dennis is the industry blueprint for innovation in the development of sustainable transport. As the largest manufacturer of buses and coaches in the UK, the company's commitment to cleaner, greener, more sustainable transport is excellent and most welcome.

"The Scottish Government announced earlier today our ambitious plans to lead the fight against climate change by cutting emissions by 80 per cent by 2050 including international aviation and shipping as well as all greenhouse gases.

"The opportunities for Scotland's modern and vibrant businesses like Alexander Dennis to develop low carbon products are vast. The ultimate benefit is of course a cleaner, more sustainable future for Scotland and our future generations. However, the economic benefits for individual business cannot be overlooked, particularly in the current economic climate.

"Today's visit has enabled me to meet the staff and senior management of what is undoubtedly one of Scotland's leading manufacturers. It is excellent that the company is also a willing, innovative and key contributor to Scotland's international lead in the fight against climate change."
