Alexander Dennis Limited (ADL) was invited by the UK Government as organisers of COP26 to present its solutions for sustainable transport to negotiators at COP26. ADL has a long tradition of innovation, having brought to market the widest range of clean buses including class-leading zero emission technologies.

Over 1,000 battery-electric buses built in Britain by ADL in partnership with BYD are already on the road or on order in the United Kingdom, and second-generation hydrogen buses will follow next year.

ADL’s zero emission buses for the United Kingdom are built in Britain, , while Internationally, ADL operates a network of local assembly facilities and benefits from experience shared with sister companies within NFI Group.

Exhibited at the COP26 Blue Zone is a BYD ADL Enviro400EV double decker, which has been branded to highlight ADL’s expertise in both battery electric and hydrogen buses.

In the lead-up to the event, Paul Davies, ADL President & Managing Director, said: “Electric and hydrogen buses have critically important roles to play on the road to net zero. With our zero emission buses operating not only across the UK but around the world, it is a great honour for Alexander Dennis to have been invited by the UK Government to present our zero emission bus in the Blue Zone at COP26, reminding negotiators and world leaders that without investment in clean public transport, climate goals cannot be achieved.

“We are extremely grateful to our colleagues at National Express West Midlands for making one of their buses available for this prestigious event. We have had a longstanding partnership with them and we continue to work collaboratively to ensure that we can support their fleet strategies as they continue their own transition to zero emissions.”
