The Sustainability & Net Zero Person or Team Award celebrates those who have demonstrated an unwavering commitment to the environment, climate action, and achieving net-zero.

In an era where ecological concerns are paramount, the award honours those who have taken extraordinary steps to reshape practices, policies, and perspectives, forging a path toward a greener future.

Green Travel Pledge at Rail Delivery Group (RDG), came away with prize at this year’s RailStaff Awards. The Green Travel Pledge is a rail industry initiative to provide detailed, accurate, and reliable carbon emissions data at the point of sale, to help businesses demonstrate the environmental benefits of switching to rail for business travel.

RDG aims to empower businesses and business travellers to choose rail as a green option over more polluting methods. Its team has worked tirelessly to create an industry benchmark for carbon measurement of business journeys by rail.

“The award for Sustainability & Net Zero Person or Team of the year is an amazing achievement for Green Travel Pledge, which is a rail industry initiative commissioned on behalf of the business travel industry and community,” said Jacqueline Starr, chief executive of Rail Delivery Group. “It is a great step forward in sustainability in rail for the future.”

The award was sponsored this year by international health and safety leadership consultancy, Broadhead Global. Broadhead Global transforms business performance and results using targeted expert consulting and training. It enables business leaders and teams to cultivate a resilient business culture, and accelerate progress towards long-term environmental and social sustainability goals.

“We are honoured to sponsor this award to celebrate sustainability, both in terms of the environment and people,” said Katy Broadhead, Broadhead Global’s business and strategy director.

“The Rail Staff Awards are a very special occasion but are essential in recognising the people who work every day in a very dynamic environment. It also gives those people a chance to celebrate their achievements together – the passion they have for what they do and the support they give each other is just incredible.”
