As the Chief Operations Officer of the Barbados Transport Board, I was thrilled to be a part of the realization of a vision that goes beyond the realm of transportation. On 18th January 2024, we joined with other partners to highlight a branding addition to the message of sustainable development goals, and we did so on a vehicle that can be powered by renewable energy.
The Sustainable Development Goals, as outlined by the United Nations, serve as a compass for global efforts to address some of the most pressing challenges facing humanity. The design on the bus serves as a visual reminder of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, each represented with pride. From eradicating poverty to ensuring gender equality, from promoting clean energy to fostering responsible consumption – this bus encapsulates our pledge to contribute meaningfully to a better world.
We invite our passengers, partners, and stakeholders to join us in this collective effort towards sustainable development. By choosing to travel with us, passengers are not only reaching their destination; they are actively participating in a movement that aims to create positive change.
