Evaluation of ECO Stars Fleet Recognition Programme
Funder: Barnsley Council
AQMRC undertook an evaluation of South Yorkshire's Eco-Stars (Efficient and Cleaner Operations) Fleet Recognition Scheme. The scheme was set up by the South Yorkshire Local Transport Plan partners supported by Travel South Yorkshire and NHS Barnsley. The scheme was formally launched on 20 January 2009 with the aim of improving air quality.
The ECO Stars 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 the fleet’s overall road transport operation using star rating criteria, to recognise levels of operational and environmental performance. Each member signing up to the scheme receives a tailor-made ‘Road Map’ specific for their organisation, detailing suggested actions to help improve their environmental performance.
