Waste Management Chart


Our station waste recycling result for January 2014 was 93% giving an MAA of 94%

Non Hazardous Waste Recycling

Target for 2013 = 90% of non hazardous waste to be recycled

2013 actual = 93% of all non hazardous waste recycled

Fleet Energy Use

c2c is committed to reducing it’s impact on the environment. We use a lot of electricity to power our trains but are always looking at ways to reduce it and hence improve our ‘Carbon Footprint’. In 2006 we were one of the first train operators to install ‘regenerative braking’ to their entire fleet. This allows trains that are braking to generate electricity that is then used by other trains. Recent improvements to this system have reduced our ‘Carbon Footprint’ to an average of 37g CO2 / Passenger kilometre.

This compares with a ‘small car’ figure of 100g CO2/pKm * – another reason to travel  with c2c.
