Merseyrail delighted to be involved with the Echo Environmental Awards

 

As part of our vision to deliver a world class railway to our local region, Merseyrail is committed to providing a sustainable, carbon friendly transport system.

This is why we joined forces with the Liverpool Echo for its 7th annual Environment Awards, which celebrates individuals who make Merseyside a greater, greener place to be as headline sponsors. www.echoenvironmentawards.co.uk

These awards provide the opportunity for business, community groups, schools and individuals across the region to shout about how they are helping to keep our city green and sustainable.

Jan Chaudhry-van der Velde, Merseyrail’s managing director commented: “Our involvement in this award underlines our commitment to improving the region’s environmental performance.

“Electric railways like ours represent a greener way of moving around Merseyside, with a far smaller carbon footprint, and less polluting congestion, compared to the private car.

“The project to deliver new trains from 2019, which we’re working on with partners Mersey travel and Network Rail, will give further environmental benefits such as regenerative braking, where electricity is fed back into the grid when trains apply the brakes.

“These initiatives illustrate our genuine desire to continually enhance our service in a sustainable way, supporting the growth and success of the local economy.”
