What does sustainability mean to you?
As an international group, we have always had a significant economic, ecological and social responsibility. That is why we see it as our duty to actively address the challenges we face when it comes to sustainability. We are committed to the goals of the European Green Deal and consistently implement an effective sustainability strategy. In our role as a pioneer, we are even striving to surpass them. We also actively take into account the expectations of our stakeholders. These include customers, employees, owners, banks, insurance companies, suppliers, public authorities and neighbours.
Our main goals:
- Reduce CO2 pollution by at least 55% compared to 1990 levels by 2030 at the latest.
- CO2-neutral by 2040 at the latest
- CO2-free by 2050 at the latest
- CO2-free compounds by 2030 at the latest
In order to achieve these goals, we rely on the three fundamental pillars for CO2 reduction: avoid – reduce – offset. Using this as a basis, we established concrete measures which we are already consistently implementing today.
Beyond this, we regularly calculate our carbon footprint in accordance with the GHG Protocol (Greenhouse Gas Protocol) and issue a Group-wide sustainability report in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).
What does rail travel mean to you?
From a professional point of view, rail travel is about making a significant contribution to sustainability and getting the transported vehicles to their destinations securely, quickly and without damage. In my private life, I also appreciate having the opportunity to use the travel time productively.
Is there anything else you would like to say?
Thank you for the excellent cooperation so far. We look forward to expanding this even further in the future.
