Network Rail wants to ensure that rail remains the greenest and most reliable form of public transport in Britain so that it can play a vital role in green economic recovery and growth. It is determined to maximise the positive contribution that rail can make to the lives of its passengers, society and the economy while minimising any negative impact on the environment.
The Environmental Sustainability Strategy focuses on four areas:
- A low-emission railway
- A reliable railway that is resilient to climate change
- Improved biodiversity of plants and wildlife
- Minimal waste and sustainable use of materials
