We are more than just a blue exterior, we are green at heart. We also want to make sure that you can travel across the east coast and still enjoy the beautiful scenery.
That's why in just one single Lumo journey you could save up to 7 trees** travelling the distance from London King's Cross to Aberdeen.
If just 15% of passengers who flew from London Heathrow to Edinburgh travelled with Lumo instead, in just one year we could save 25,600 tonnes of CO2e. That's the equivalent of one million trees.**
How can you travel sustainably with Lumo?
Scope 1 emissions (direct emissions) are direct greenhouse gas emissions that result from sources owned or controlled by an organization, for example, fossil fuel combustion from company-owned vehicles.
Scope 2 emissions (indirect emissions) relate to purchased electricity, heat and steam as a result of energy consumption (e.g. power station in the case of electricity generation).
Scope 3 emissions (other indirect emissions) relate to indirect emissions from 3rd parties such as the production and lifecycle of purchased goods, for example products and services onboard.
