To fully support a reduction in use of resources to meet our legal and societal obligations to the environment. To develop and maintain good practices and an engaged and well-informed workforce to protect the environment from damage.
Three key workstreams we are focusing on are:
- Energy and water
- Fuel and Air quality
|2021 Target||Performance January - September 2021 (period 1 to period 9)
|Our trains (traction carbon emissions)||Reduce kilos of carbon emissions (kgCO2e) per vehickle (vkm) by 0.15%||Our baseline figure in 2019 was 1.362 per vehicle km. By period 9 we have increased our carbon emissions by 1.8%. This is primarily due to the Covid emergency timetable that was in place for the first months of the year that was less efficient for fuel consumption|
|Our Energy (non-traction energy use)||Reduce our energy consumption by 6.6%||Our baseline figure in 2019 was 12.1 million kwh. At period 9 we are on track to deliver a 9.9% reduction|
|Our Water||Reduce our water consumption by 8.7%||Our baseline figure in 2019 was 68,986 m3. At period 9 we are on track to deliver a 13.2% reduction|
|Our Waste (total waste produced in tonnes)||Reduce overall waste produced by 17.3%||Our baseline figure in 2019 was 1505.89 tonnes of waste produced. By period 9 we have achieved a 44% reduction in waste produced|
|Our Recycling (percentage of waste recycled)||Achieve 25% of all waste being recycled, with zero waste to landfill.||Our baseline figure in 2019 was 18% of waste being recycled with no waste to landfill. At period 9 the rate stands at 28.3% recycled|
