Green Skills with GTR (Govia Thameslink Railway) - Green Skills Week 2021
This April, SPEAKERS for schools are breaking down barriers
to booming zero-carbon industries and those committed to significantly reducing
their carbon footprint with the launch of “Green Skills Week”.
Govia Thameslink would like to take this opportunity to give
you an insight into the railway and share with you what we are doing in the
transport industry. We have a dedicated Climate Change Taskforce who are
working on several workstreams looking at Decarbonisation, Waste, Water, Air
Quality and Climate Change Adaptation.
Within these workstreams some of the areas we are currently
focussing on include reducing waste and improving our recycling rates, real
time information on utility usage and increasing the number of Electric Vehicle
charging points across our estate.
We have also partnered up with
energygarden.org.uk to install solar panels on some of our larger depots,
providing clean energy and supporting their work to deliver new green spaces.
If you want to hear more about our projects and
see what our internal volunteers are getting up to, join us on the 6th of April from 10am till 12pm.
