As part of the effort to "go green", c2c is giving wildflower seeds to station staff to scatter around their facilities. It is also asking the Essex Wildlife Trust for advice on how to use disused land around railways and stations to protect nearby wildlife.
John More, living landscape coordinator for Essex Wildlife Trust, said: "We're thrilled to be working with c2c rail on this project raising awareness around the potential wildlife value of how to use disused land and how it can be improved to it promote wildlife."
In a statement, c2c said it is committed to being "even greener" in the future.
