We are becoming a climate change innovator and are committed to delivering a 100% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2030 and a 100% reduction through our entire value chain by 2050.

Through low carbon technology, we are working to help cities, governments and customers to cut carbon in the mobility sector and our decarbonisation strategy focuses on three pillars to drive change…

  1. Drive a modal shift by making rail an attractive alternative and enhancing with Mobility as a Service;

  2. Accelerate the decarbonisation of rail by creating new electrified railways or powering trains with batteries;

  3. Decarbonise our own industrial footprint in line with UN’s Science Based Targets.

Read more about our first challenge; a new approach to carbon measurement. Scope 3 emissions are notoriously difficult to measure but account for most of the companies footprint.
