RSSB Rail Carbon Tool Training
Network Rail’s Environmental and Social Minimum Requirements standard requires rail projects (those with over £1m spend on civils, track and overhead line equipment) to undertake a carbon assessment using the RSSB Rail Carbon Tool. The RSSB Rail Carbon Tool is free for RSSB members and non-members working in the GB rail sector. Projects must demonstrate that they have used the results to influence design and construction.
Measuring and reducing carbon is also important for UK policy requirements. These include the goal to achieve zero carbon emissions by 2050 and for achieving verification for specifications such as PAS (Publicly Available Specification) 2080 — the world’s first low carbon infrastructure specification.
Delegates are provided with the knowledge to assess carbon emission using the Tool. The course includes modelling data and using templates, capturing whole life and construction impacts, and interpreting data through the internal analysis tools.

We recognise that every organisation is different, so we work directly with organisations to develop bespoke courses. This course can be developed in a modular format to allow for flexible remote delivery to suit your needs. The modular approach will also allow for time between modules to apply the learning and reflect with colleagues and trainers.
