We are committed to the pursuit of a lower carbon railway. Less carbon means less cost, and the more ambitious we are, the more we are helping the country meet its carbon targets. We have both traction and non-traction targets and believe we can halve our footprint in the medium term. We can also make a significant contribution to reducing the carbon footprint of travel and logistics in Great Britain, by  ncouraging a shift of passengers and freight from more carbon intense modes, and accommodating increased demand for rail.
