Resource use & Waste

We recognise our role in using products and materials more efficiently and ensuring they’re recovered when we no longer need them. HS1 Ltd commissions major construction, refurbishment and track maintenance projects that create waste. To reduce our waste and be responsible, we have set out targets to be meet by 2022 and 2023.

Our targets

  • Zero non-hazardous waste to landfill from regular operations & projects by 2022
  • 90% recycling of operations and project wastes by 2023

How we’ll achieve them

We will review our waste portfolio throughout 2021 and in turn develop standards for our project suppliers so that non-hazardous waste can be diverted from landfill. We will also look to minimise any waste produced, making use of established best practice in waste minimisation.

We will work with our stakeholders to reduce waste from our operations through resource efficiency and increasing recycling.
