As an operator, the Green Scheme is a perfect way to showcase all the effort and work you put in to minimise the impact on the environment.

All participants in the scheme will be able to use the Green Scheme endorsement logo in marketing and promotional material. This will make it easier for the public and customers to distinguish you as an environmentally friendly operator from others that are not as environmentally conscious.

You can use the scheme as a tool to support you in improving your environmental performance and become a leader in inland waterway transport best practice.

We are working with incentive providers around incentives for scheme members. We expect these benefits to be graduated, increasing according to an operator’s tier of environmental performance; the cleaner the vessels, the greater the incentive.
