Environment

We are committed to delivering a more sustainable way to operate our railway. We are embracing initiatives to tackle energy and water consumption to manage resources more efficiently: driving down waste, reducing negative impacts on our neighbours and increasing positive impacts.

Our commitment to a sustainable future

As a company, we are committed to taking environment and energy concerns into account in all our decisions. As we work towards minimising the environmental impact of our business, we’re guided by our Environment and Energy Policy

Our commitment hasn’t gone unnoticed – our efforts continue to earn us recognition for the improvements we are making.

  • Recommendation for Certification to ISO14001, the international standard for environmental management
  • Recommendation for Certification to ISO 50001, the international standard for energy management
  • Environment Award for our groundbreaking ‘Towards a One Planet Railway’ Strategy at the Rail Industry Innovation Awards 2016 
  • A member of our team was highly commended for an Outstanding Personal Contribution at the National Rail Awards 2016 

Setting high standards 

Our initiatives to reduce environmental impact, alongside our commitment to improve rail sustainability, align with the One Planet principles making Thameslink very well positioned to become the first One Planet Train Operating Company.

The One Planet principles we follow – developed by BioRegional and adapted slightly to better suit our operations – are shown here:




We don’t expect to achieve all of these principles within our franchise term: for example, Zero Carbon is a significant challenge. But the aim of the scheme is to be inspired by long term aspirations and to make clear progress towards these ultimate goals.
