Alstom can trace its history in the UK back to the invention of Stephenson’s Rocket, the lightbulb, and the first jet engine. Half of the power generation in the UK and a third of rail passenger journeys are taken on our trains. Our products and projects have lifecycles of 30 – 40 years. And we are investing in the new infrastructure technologies that will provide energy and mobility to Britain for decades to come.
In this way, Alstom continues to shape the future of the British rail and energy infrastructure – and therefore the company’s long-term view is part of its identity. Economic, social and environmental sustainability are paramount.
Our corporate social responsibility programmes focus on several key areas.
