Resources & Waste Impacts

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 2025.

Our targets

  • 2022/23: Zero non-hazardous waste (direct) to landfill from regular operations & projects by end of 2022-23.
  • 2023/24:90% recycling of operations and project wastes by end of 2023-24.
  • 2024/25: Develop a circularity and minimisation plan for stations and depot, and implement the plan.
  • 2024/25: Understand hazardous waste and waste indirect to landfill – include in waste minimisation.

How we’ll achieve them

We have reviewed our waste portfolio 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.
