The future is green – and we share in the responsibility to make it so. Freight transport by rail emits significantly less carbon than any other option in the transport industry.
Sustainability is part of our DNA
We are proud that the rail net is part of tomorrow’s green transport solutions. We are actively working every day to become even more environmentally friendly.
- We have very low rolling resistance. This means that we can move many tonnes using very little power.
- 85% of our traffic in DB Cargo Scandinavia is pulled by electric locomotives, and a large share of the electricity used is green electricity.
- Our electric locomotives are equipped with braking systems that generate and transmit energy back to the electrical grid.
