Our central purpose

We keep London moving to make the city as safe, sustainable and inclusive as possible, in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Our Sustainability Report and Corporate Environment Plan set out how we're meeting the needs of today while preparing for a future where we continue to serve London for generations to come.

Sustainability Report

Our Sustainability Report shows what we're doing to improve our social, environmental and economic impact. We do this by:

  • Caring about our colleagues, customers and communities through safe, healthy and accessible transport services 
  • Operating in a sustainable way to protect and regenerate the natural world 
  • Being financially sustainable to provide a resilient and good quality of life for all

Corporate Environment Plan

Our Corporate Environment Plan guides us to be a more sustainable organisation with five focus areas to support the Mayor's ambition for London to be zero carbon by 2030.

Carbon literacy

Our work to become a more sustainable organisation includes improving our knowledge about how to reduce our carbon consumption and emissions. This is done through peer-led, accredited training.

Thousands of people at TfL have completed the training, including our Commissioner and Chief Officers.

In 2024 the Carbon Literacy Project named us as a Bronze Carbon Literate Organisation and gave us a Catalyst Award for our level of ambition and achievement as part of the Carbon Literacy Action Day during COP28. We're one of only 3 organisations globally to receive this award.

Climate change adaptation

We want a safer and more sustainable future for the communities we serve. Our first pan-TfL adaptation plan details how we will adapt to climate change through a coordinated and comprehensive plan.

Find out how we're Adapting to climate change.

Green infrastructure and biodiversity

We're playing our part in creating a greener, more biodiverse and inclusive city that is better adapted to the changing climate.

Our green infrastructure includes trackside vegetation, wildflower verges, street trees and rain gardens. Our work to make these areas thrive benefits people living, working and exploring London, and wider society, as well as TfL itself.

Find out how we protect, connect and enhance our green infrastructure and biodiversity.
