Environmentally respectful transport

Environmentally respectful transport 

We are committed to long-term environmental work. Our operations also take into account the environmental objectives and requirements of our customers.

  • We will increase the share of energy-efficient electrically driven traffic in rail freight transport.
  • We will begin to use new energy-saving tractive stock in rail traffic and shunting yards.
  • We will replace or modify wagons by utilising any reusable parts of old rolling stock.
  • We will increase the size of freight trains and semi-trailer vehicles while reducing energy consumption and emissions.
  • We will ensure that there will be no major leakages causing soil contamination when transporting hazardous substances.
  • We will minimise empty journeys in road transport and favour engine types that reduce emissions.
