Luas wins in transport at The Green Awards for its efforts in sustainability
The Green Awards recognise the extraordinary contribution and commitment that companies now make towards growing a greener future in Irish business today.
Luas was awarded The Green Transport Award, announced 20th of February.
Luas and Sustainability
As a sustainable public transport option, Luas is addressing one of the most pressing environmental concerns worldwide, ‘the growing impact of transport on the environment.’ Countries around the world still rely heavily on cars as the primary transport mode, and with this comes a reliance on diminishing fossil fuels and other natural resources.
Luas is evidence that this movement towards more sustainable transport modes is happening in Dublin. The light rail system represents less air pollution, less noise and less vibration from road traffic.
TII and Transdev believe that protecting the environment and contributing to sustainable economic and social development is an essential part of Luas and its future in the city.
