Along with the growing trends of urbanization, globalization and demographic changes, the demand for mobility and all forms of transportation is constantly growing. At the same time, there is a growing need to reduce the further growth of pollution and climate change in order to shape environmentally sustainable solutions and a sustainable future.

The railway is green and sustainable!
Rail is mainly electrified and emits far less CO2 than equivalent travel by road or air. It accounts for only 0.4% of greenhouse gas emissions from EU traffic, while all EU traffic accounts for 25% of total EU emissions. In addition, it is the only means of transport that constantly reduced emissions and energy consumption between 1990 and 2017, and increasingly used renewable energy sources.
