Kura is passionate about collaborating with its customers and operator suppliers to reduce its impact on the environment. It is therefore delighted to partner with Plumpton College to help them reduce their transport carbon footprint as part of their strategy to achieve net zero by 2030.
Kura coach and minibus services reduce CO2 emissions by more than 70% compared to car journeys, with a single 49-seat coach replacing an average of 31 cars on each run. Until the infrastructure is in place to provide reliable zero-emission electric vehicles, the unavoidable transport emissions it produces, through servicing customers like Plumpton College, are offset via the funding of global projects that reduce CO2 emissions and provide social benefit.
The relationship with Plumpton College and our shared desire to work on projects with both environmental and social benefit is now going a step further as Kura supports the College in the installation of a solar power system in the heart of the Maasai community in Kenya.
This solution will allow a local school to generate its own sustainable, non-polluting electricity, benefiting over 600 Kenyan students while minimising the environmental impact. Kura and Plumpton College firmly believe in fostering safer, greener, and smarter approaches to ensure that young minds across the globe have sustainable access to education.
