Activity: Public transport
Greening public transportation
The Kölner Verkehrsbetriebe AG (KVB), the public transport company of the city of Cologne has not only reduced its environmental impact considerably and established an environmental management system but also raised public awareness of environmental issues and networking with other environmental transport activities.
For example, they have negotiated attractive rates and special conditions with car sharing organisations for all their season ticket holders. Their latest initiative is the 'EMAS train', a tram which displays prominently the new EMAS logo in large format on its coachwork and provides more information on EMAS to passengers inside.
