Our commitment to the environment 

We believe in green public transport - with rail travel being one of the most environmentally-friendly ways to travel. Operating in a socially and environmentally responsible way is important to us.

Meeting your needs in an environmentally responsible way

Southeastern works together with industry partners, contractors and suppliers to reduce our environmental impact and measure and report on our performance. We’re always looking for ways to improve how we work and go beyond what the law and regulation require of us.
We’re focusing on:
  • Energy use associated with powering our trains
  • Energy use associated with operating our stations and depots
  • Waste management
Our objectives include:
  • Reducing electricity and gas consumption
  • Increasing the amount of waste diverted from landfill
  • Engaging our employees to reduce the environmental impact of our activities
Overall, we want to provide you with a train service that we can be proud of.

Recent environmental statistics - 1 April 2021 – 26 June 2021 (2021/22 P01 – P03)

Environment incidents reported, included any enforcement action  3

Methodology, scope and exclusions
Carbon reporting relates to Scope 1 &2 and includes electricity and gas, does not include fugitive emissions from air conditioning equipment (where this is available) and estimates of emission from road vehicle use.
Scope 2 emissions include both a 'location' and a 'market' basis. This dual reporting applies to CO2e emissions arising from our electricity consumption only. The location based method uses the national average carbon factors for mains electricity which takes the total mix of fuels used to generate electricity. 2020 DEFRA carbon factors have been used in this report. The market-based method uses supplier or product specific carbon factors (where available), which reflect supply between the supplier and customer.
Energy use reflects in year use which includes estimations, which also influences carbon reported here, so energy and carbon use is subject to change at year end. Noise complaints do not include complaints related to train horns.

Did you know?

  • We use technology to generate energy when many of our trains brake and return it as electricity to the rail system
  • We have upgraded our lighting at a number of stations and depots to a new energy efficient LED system, reducing energy use
  • We monitor our water consumption with meters and work to fix leaks

Our environmental and energy policy

Through innovation, we will drive continual environmental and energy improvements.
