TransPennine Express recognises the importance of being a responsible organisation and a good neighbour, and recognises that as a train company we are vital in supporting the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of the area we serve.
With increasing populations living ever closer together, congestion will be an enduring feature and the need for efficient operations and delivery is more critical and more complex than ever before.
We know that acting responsibly is the only way forward to build a sustainable business. We therefore seek to be a leader in delivering safe, innovative, reliable and sustainable transport.
A strong commitment to corporate responsibility (CR) is fundamental and our strategic priorities to focus on the key areas that are most relevant and material to this to enable us to deliver our commitments across six areas:
Transform – TPE & Forestry Commission Community and Environmental Grants
As part of our commitment to the communities we serve, each year of this franchise we will operate a grants scheme to provide funding for projects that aim to improve their local area through initiatives such as physical environmental improvements, social inclusion schemes and tackling youth unemployment.
Applications are now closed for the 2016/17 Transform Grants Scheme. Grants will be running again in 2017/18 so check back in future.
