Social Impacts

Our role in the community is important to us as a responsible neighbour and as an inspiration for everyone that uses our services and facilities. To demonstrate our leadership in providing a positive contribution to the communities in and around our stations and lineside, we place a high value in contributing our time and expertise to enable those communities to flourish.

Our targets

  • Contribute 700 hours of staff time each year to local communities and charity activities related to HS1’s activities by the end of 2022
  • Report measurable social impacts delivered by end 2025

How we’ll achieve them

We will identify partner charities which align to our sustainability strategy and support the work they do. We will continue our current work with organisations such as Urban Partners, a voluntary business partnership supporting the local Kings Cross, Euston and St Pancras area, which HS1 Ltd helps fund as one of its members. As a member HS1 Ltd gives its time, expertise and resources in order to build and sustain a thriving urban neighbourhood that is a good place to work, live and do business.

We will also look to identify a suitable social impact methodology to report our impacts against beyond just the hours we contribute.
