London Underground is currently formulating the detail of the environmental elements which it will propose in the periodic review of the PPP contract. The main focus will be on energy efficiency - devising a strategy which dovetails into the TfL deliverables for the CO2 emissions targets that I have set. To this end, LU is exploring options to strengthen the mechanisms that incentivise energy efficiency in the delivery of the PPP contract, in terms of day to day operations and in planning for future line / station / depot upgrade and refurbishment projects. Waste, Recycling and Biodiversity elements are also being considered.
