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.
