ECO Stars Cornwall

What is ECO Stars? 

The ECO Stars Fleet Recognition Scheme is a free, voluntary scheme that provides recognition, guidance and advice on operational best practice to operators of goods vehicles, buses and coaches.

The scheme has been introduced in Cornwall to help fleet operators improve efficiency, reduce fuel consumption and reduce emissions – all helping to improve local air quality and at the same time, make cost savings.

When joining, your vehicles and overall fleet will be rated by industry experts to assess their current performance – both operational and environmental – and achieve an ECO Stars rating between 1 and 5. A bespoke “road map” will be produced containing guidance to help improve the efficiency of your fleet.

The scheme is delivered by Transport Research Laboaratory (TRL), on behalf of Cornwall Council.

ECO Stars Cornwall was launched on 16th June 2016.  ECO Stars certificates were awarded to the inaugral members who were welcomed to the launch by Cornwall Councillor Geoff Brown.

The scheme is initially open to membership from businesses operating vans, HDVs, buses and coaches in the Camborne, Pool, Illogan and Redruth (CPIR) area. However, we hope to expand this to other parts of Cornwall over the next few years. 

The ECO Stars scheme is open to all who operate in the CPIR area, but especially if you regularly use:

  • A3047 Wesley Street
  • The East-West Link Road

Operators do not have to be based in CPIR to be eligible to apply.

Your fleet can:

  • Be any size – from just 1 vehicle up to large fleets
  • Include all types of commercial vehicles including vans, HDVs, buses and coaches
  • Be from any industry sector - private and public sector, retail, road haulage, industrial, parcel and courier, community transport, bus and coach service.
