ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIVENESS IN AUSTRALIA'S BUS AND COACH SUPPLY CHAIN

The responsiveness of business enterprises to the natural environment is of great concern to both the government and industrial sectors of Canada. This article examines transportation's contribution to greenhouse gas emissions. It identifies and describes environmental responsiveness within Australia's bus and coach sector, a major operator of passenger transportation. This sector is defined in the full context of the supply chain; that is, the integration of business processes from manufacturers and suppliers of vehicles and fuel to the providers of services and information for the benefit and value of customers. The article focuses on the perceptions that bus and coach operators have about environmental opportunities and associated risks. 26 stakeholders were invited to participate in either a survey or case study designed to ascertain energy and waste management practices. A number of specific actions are warranted based on the study's findings.
