London, Tilbury & Southend operator c2c has brought forward its deadline to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by a decade to 2040.

Safety, Sustainability and Compliance Director Stuart Browning said: ‘Following ongoing discussions and a thorough review of our decarbonisation strategy, we have revisited our original net zero target of 2050 and will bring it forward ten years (to 2040) in line with our owning group’s plans.

‘We are firmly committed to continuing to explore and introduce, where financially and operationally viable, further working and operational initiatives which will help reduce our impact on the environment and communities we serve, allowing us to reach net zero by 2040.’
