Delivering a sustainable future

As an integral part of the transport network, we need a robust plan that puts sustainability and stakeholders at the heart of everything we do.

For the first time, the Department for Transport has given us defined objectives. Our strategic approach will help us respond to social, economic and environmental risks and opportunities, while continuing to build strong partnerships with our customers and communities.

Our strategy

Our strategy shows how we plan to deliver a framework that aligns with the Rail Industry’s Sustainable Development Principles. These core values are fundamental in delivering a railway that will meet the needs of society without compromising future quality of life. Our strategy focuses on 8 key themes.
