This webinar will describe Network Rail’s sustainability journey over the past few years and will highlight the challenges the British rail industry will face in the future, covering the key topics of decarbonisation, biodiversity net gain, climate change adaptation and moving to a circular economy against a backdrop of reorganisation of the rail industry and reduced funding.

Dr Rossa Donovan is Technical Director at Nature Positive. He is a Chartered Ecologist and sustainability expert with more than 25 years’ experience, which he has gained across the academic, consultancy and public sectors. Before joining Nature Positive, Rossa was head of environment and sustainability at Network Rail, where he led the development of Network Rail’s most ambitious and forward-looking strategy to date – a 30-year strategy covering decarbonisation, biodiversity, climate change adaptation and the circular economy – including science-based targets to reach net zero by 2050 and targets to achieve no net loss of biodiversity by 2024 and biodiversity net gain by 2035. Rossa also provided technical advice to the Great British Railways Transition Team to support the development of the Whole Industry Strategic Plan (WISP) – a 30-year plan to transform the British rail industry.

💧 It's #WorldWetlandsDay, which aims to raise awareness of the vital role of wetlands for people and the planet.

💚 We need to change our mindset around these essential habitats and their importance.
