We Are Eco Stars!

ZooTemplateThe ECO Stars (Efficient and Cleaner Operations) Fleet Recognition Scheme is a free, voluntary scheme designed to provide recognition, guidance and advice to operators of goods vehicles, buses and coaches across South Yorkshire.

ECO Stars rates individual vehicles and your fleet's overall road transport operation using star rating criteria, to recognise levels of operational and environmental performance.

The ECO Stars scheme is the first of its kind in the UK. It is straightforward to join and there is no formal audit process.

Each member signing up to the scheme will receive tailormade support to ensure that their fleet is running as efficiently and economically as possible, to help them progress to higher ratings.

The scheme is open to operators of all types of commercial vehicles (light goods vehicles, heavy goods vehicles, buses and coaches), across all sectors of activity (own account, hire and reward, private and public sectors, retail, haulage, industrial, parcels, community transport, local registered bus services, longer distance coach services etc) and all sizes.

The ECO Stars Fleet Recognition Scheme is managed by four South Yorkshire local authorities (Barnsley MBC, Doncaster MBC, Rotherham MBC, Sheffield CC), along with the South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE), under the banner of the South Yorkshire Local Transport Plan Partnership. In addition, NHS Barnsley supports the scheme due to the potential public health benefits across all communities in South Yorkshire.

On setting up the scheme, the Partnership recognised the need to engage with fleet operators, in order to recognise best practice from operators in fuel management and emission reduction, as well as encouraging further improvements. This scheme therefore works towards the Partnerships' aspirations for improved air quality and reduced CO2 emissions.
