Running Rail Ltd is actively committed to embedding sustainable development into our procurement practices to reduce our impact on the environment and enhance

integration into the communities that we operate within. Sustainable procurement ensures that we find suppliers that are aligned with our values and can assist with

embedding our social and environmental objectives in line with our ISO Certification.


Supply chains are a natural extension of our workforce and the way in which we undertake our work is critical to delivering sustainability. We source materials from

suppliers who promote sustainable manufacturing for example wood from Forest Certification System (FSC) certified sources and local to the project where possible,

with the necessary skills to take on the complex signaling works required to deliver our projects.


Our focus of sustainable development extends beyond living within environmental limits. It is also about ensuring a strong, healthy and just society, for example;


  • Meeting the diverse needs of people in existing and future communities
  • Promoting personal wellbeing, social cohesion and inclusion
  • Creating equal opportunity


The three pillars of Sustainable Development together form a cohesive platform from which to build a sustainable environment for future generations to come. These are,

Social Development, Economic Development and Environmental Protection.
