RIA welcomes HS2 Net Zero Carbon Plan
The Railway Industry Association (RIA), the voice of the UK rail supply community, has welcomed the publication of HS2's Net Zero Carbon Plan.
Kate Jennings, RIA Policy Director and High Speed Rail Group Board member, said: “It is good to see HS2 Ltd committing to being zero carbon from the very first day trains run. This commitment shows how an already environmentally-friendly rail project can lead the way and go even further in supporting the UK’s Net Zero agenda, whilst also supporting investment and jobs.
“HS2 will need the support of the rail supply community if it is to deliver its Net Zero Carbon Plan, and rail businesses across the country, including RIA members big and small, are ready to meet this challenge head on, ultimately supporting a new green railway for the UK.”
