David Gray, head of energy and environment at Northern, said: “Everyone can check the CO₂e emission impact of their commute via the ‘Savings Calculator’ on our website.


“We want more people to leave their car at home and take the train to work and the Savings Calculator tool is one of the ways we’re helping people make informed decisions.”

Northern is the second largest train operator in the UK, with 2,500 services a day to more than 500 stations across the North of England.

All calculations are made using Government conversion factors. Environmental data regarding Northern’s fleet of trains is validated each year by an external auditor.
