Environmental Management

Tram on bridge with grass




Edinburgh Trams Ltd operates an Environmental Management System

certified to ISO14001.

We understand that some of the activities required for the operation of our tramway can significantly impact on the environment. At Edinburgh Trams we are taking ownership of both the problems and solutions to ensure our future health and wellbeing.

We have already put in place measures to support this:

  • The energy that powers our trams comes from a low carbon emission supplier.
  • We work closely with our waste management contractor to maximise recycling for our customers and colleagues.
  • We have a water harvesting system at our depot which reuses rainwater to wash our fleet of trams. With our output water being tested on a regular basis, to ensure no harmful chemicals enter the environment.

We all have an essential role in adopting a greener lifestyle. The current climate crisis urges us to work together to invest in a better future for our city.
