Your footprint counts

Travelling by coach is one of the cleanest ways to travel, so you’re already making a great choice! As we work to make our coach fleet zero emission by 2035, we want to enable our passengers to offset the carbon emissions from their journeys via some of the best climate solutions around the world. Your offset will directly support projects that replace coal and oil with renewable energy to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions. Each of the projects contribute to multiple UN Sustainable Development Goals, which also create social benefits and improved living conditions for those hardest hit by climate change.


Trusted climate action

National Express has partnered with CHOOOSE, a dedicated team of entrepreneurs, engineers, and climate experts who are building digital tools so that everyone, anywhere can more simply and easily integrate climate action into everyday life and business. With its ecosystem of partners and individual supporters in more than 70 countries, the CHOOOSE platform is accelerating access and adoption of climate solutions across a range of key technologies.

The climate projects you support

When you offset your journey's carbon footprint with National Express you're supporting verified carbon-reducing projects, carefully selected by carbon professionals.

This project in the Los Santos region in Costa Rica generates clean electricity and displaces the emissions which would be generated by other power plants connected to the national electrical grid. It is also the first wind power project to be developed in Costa Rica by a rural electrification cooperative. While generating clean electricity, the project aims to achieve sustainable and economic development by supporting the local communities in improving infrastructure as well as educating the population on sustainable energy consumption, climate change, and biodiversity.

A large part of the rural population in India still cooks on an open fire by burning biomass which contributes to greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation, and air pollution. This practice also affects people's health, leading to more than a million people who die every year from inhaling harmful fumes from cooking in India. The project is supplying families with biogas plants in the Chickballapur district of Karnataka province, providing a clean and safe way of cooking that reduces greenhouse gas emissions by switching to 100% renewable energy. This means health benefits for the whole family, in particular for women and children.

The Pichacay Landfill Gas Renewable Energy project leads to a considerable greenhouse gas emission reduction in Ecuador. The project recovers landfill methane which previously was released into the atmosphere, and delivers electricity to the grid. It is the first landfill in Ecuador in which landfill gas extraction and electricity generation are applied.

“The type of offsetting projects that is socialising and promoting represents the best standards of international emission reductions available today”

Manager, Global Climate Action at UNFCCC
