FirstGroup is a leading private sector provider of public transport. We provide easy and convenient mobility, improving quality of life by connecting people and communities.
Our services are a vital part of society – transporting customers for business, education, health, social and leisure purposes.
Our businesses are at the heart of our communities, and the essential services we provide are critical to delivering wider economic, social and environmental goals.
Sustainability & Supply Chain
We are committed to building a business for the long term, and our sustainability agenda goes to the heart of who we are and what we do as an organisation.
We have a critical role in creating a connected, healthy, zero carbon world, contributing to local prosperity and growth, reducing congestion on the roads, improving air quality and helping to reduce carbon emissions.
In 2021, FirstGroup became the first public transport operator in the UK to formally commit to setting a science-based target aligned with limiting global warming to 1.5°C and to reaching net-zero emissions by 2050or earlier. We were also the first public transport operator in the UK to officially support the Taskforce for Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
