Rail Partners responds to the publication of RSSB's Sustainable Rail Blueprint

14 November 2023

Commenting on the publication of RSSB’s Sustainable Rail Blueprint, Mark Gaynor, Rail Partners’ director of operator services, said:

‘The publication of the RSSB’s Sustainable Rail Blueprint is the culmination of a significant industry collaboration which sets out a new framework for running a more sustainable network.

‘The railway can’t afford to be complacent about sustainability and if we want to attract more passengers and freight customers, we have to ensure we keep up with other modes of transport, who are decarbonising at pace.  

‘The Blueprint is not just about carbon, it’s rightly about the railway’s wider impact on society, the economy and the environment. Rail Partners looks forward to working with our industry colleagues to turn it into reality and embedding it into industry plans, processes, procurements and contracts.’
