The Mayor's Transport Strategy sets out six goals to deliver sustainable transport benefits. These are:
We are a founding contributor to the International Association of Public Transport's Charter on Sustainable Development which means we are committed to incorporating sustainable development as an organisation.
Our responsible procurement policy promotes fair employment practices. We aim to purchase low-carbon, resource-efficient goods and services that are responsibly sourced.
We are working with local communities to make public transport, walking and cycling more accessible. These initiatives include our school travel plans scheme and the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) ambassadors programme.
We are introducing a number of measures to help the Mayor achieve his target to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 60% in 2025 (from 1990 levels).
We are also working to ensure our services and buildings are adapted to the changing climate.
We are helping road freight operators to adopt safer, more efficient and more environmentally friendly practices through the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme. This offers operators benefits to help them improve their performance.
We make sure new stations and refurbishments address sustainability, such as those undergoing Tube improvement, London Overground, DLR and Crossrail.
This includes planning for skills and regeneration, reusing and recycling construction waste, providing step-free access for disabled passengers and secure cycle storage.
