Corporate responsibility

Taking Our Communities Places

We put the passenger at the heart of everything we do at Southern. We want to make people feel welcome and show we care about their individual needs and make every step of their journey as easy as possible.

Southern awarded Big Tick by Business in the Community.Big tick

We are pleased to have been presented with the Big Tick award for our Corporate Responsibility work at the Arts and Business Awards.

Big Ticks are awarded to businesses who demonstrate significant achievement in tackling key social and environmental issues. The Ticks are part of Business in the Community’s celebration of arts engagement, in line with their larger social agenda.

Southern was a finalist in the Corporate Responsibility category of the Arts and Business Awards for its Art on the Line project. 

To find out more about Art on the Line see the Community section of our website.

This project is one part of our approach to support the communities we serve. We have almost 40 station partnerships, working closely with local groups to bring art, gardens and much more to our stations. This is real recognition of the hard efforts of everyone involved with our community work

See the Station Partnership section of our website for more details.
