  • Achieved through Codes of Practice
rail environmental credentials

  • Less emissions than road and aviation
  • Energy efficient compared to other modes
  • Less noise than aviation or road
  • Less land take than roads
discussion paper
Discussion Paper

Focuses on:

  • Low priority issues, often local issues
  • Suggests regulation without identifying the problem
  • Does not give the industry the opportunity to address the “problem” itself
  • Does not recognise the different environmental issues for different aspects of the industry, eg

  • Consistent between modes
  • Affordable and not result in modal distortion
  • Make a real difference
