We are the first mainline train operator in the UK to introduce this regenerative breaking system.
c2c’s Environmental Management and Energy Management is externally certificated by LRQA to ISO14001 Environmental Management Systems and ISO50001 Energy Management Systems.
Our station waste recycling result for January 2014 was 93% giving an MAA of 94%
Target for 2013 = 90% of non hazardous waste to be recycled
2013 actual = 93% of all non hazardous waste recycled
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.
Target 2013 Achieve a 10% reduction on the 2010 baseline
2013 actual 3% reduction against the 2010 baseline
