Our commitments towards the environment

Trains are economical in terms of energy and, compared with the number of passengers being transported, the rail infrastructure also needs less ground space than highways infrastructure. These benefits make it the ideal, environmentally-friendly means of transport supporting our ability to travel.

That's why we encourage transport by train. But our ambition doesn't just stop there. For the next five years, we have defined specific objectives that enshrine the way that we work into a dynamic that respects the environment.

Under the motto "Sustainable transport, sustainable work", we are encouraging all of our partners to go green. In specific terms, this boils down to continuing to reduce the consumption of energy and water, the use of consumables, such as paper, to further limit the production of waste, to reduce noise pollution and to continue in our efforts to decontaminate soil.
