CDC Victoria is excited to be announced a finalist in the 2021 Premier’s Sustainability Awards!

Now in its 19th year, the awards program celebrates individuals, communities and organisations across Victoria who are leading the way in sustainability.

CDC Victoria is a finalist in the Healthy Environment category for being industry leaders in the implementation of Volvo E-Zone technology in Melbourne track bus services.

In 2020, CDC Victoria became the first public transport provider in Australia to implement the use of automatic geofencing technology to deliver enhanced environmental performance by reducing emissions and limiting engine noise in identified zones.

Using Volvo’s Zone Management System in their hybrid fleet, the initiative has allowed CDC Victoria to manage adverse impacts on the environment, making Victoria’s public transport network more sustainable and less disruptive.

As at July 2021, 45 of 50 Volvo hybrid buses ordered are in operation around Melbourne and have shown to reduce nitrogen oxide and particulate emissions by up to 50% and reduce fuel and CO2 emissions by up to 40%.

We would like to congratulate all of the finalists on their entries and are looking forward to the opportunity to celebrate our collective achievements.

The winner of the Premier’s Sustainability Awards ceremony announced on Tuesday 23 November 2021.
