Kleanbus appoints former TfL air quality specialist to board

Kleanbus, which is providing zero emission repowering solutions to bus operators, has appointed former TfL and GLA air quality specialist Lucy Parkin as its first director of environmental, social and governance.

Parkin joins Kleanbus following 12 years advising TfL and the GLA on air quality, focusing on policy development, analysis, and assessment. She  joins the main board of Kleanbus to lead the company’s relationships with bus operators, TfL, government and local authorities, and as part of the development team working to quantify the impact of the move to a zero-emission bus fleet on the public and organisations, such as the NHS and social care bodies. 

Joe Tighe, co-founder and CEO of Kleanbus, says: “I am extremely pleased to welcome Lucy to the Kleanbus board. As one of the UK’s leading authorities on air quality, her experience and specialist knowledge will play a vital role in our journey towards repowering the UK’s bus fleet, working closely with operators, authorities and government to find innovative solutions to their climate change, and, in particular, air quality targets.”

Parkin adds: “Kleanbus offers a unique solution which could play a vital role in helping authorities and operators meet their clean air targets faster and more cost-effectively than buying new electric models. Every diesel bus repowered by Kleanbus is a polluter removed from the road forever, and another step towards a zero-emission bus fleet.”
