The rail sector is the most energy efficient and low-carbon mode of motorized transport, as proven by our independently reviewed carbon calculator tools Eco Passenger and Eco Transit.
However we are not complacent. We realize that to maintain our environmental advantage over the road and air sectors, we have to constantly innovate and improve our performance.
The UIC makes every possible efforts to improve railways energy effiency. To do so, we are happy to work with international institutions such as the International Energy Agency. In 2012, we jointly published a report that provide all needed data. To see the report please click on the image below :
This is only one of the many projects that the Energy Network launched. If you want to get to know other energy projects, please visit the energy & CO2 section of the UIC website.
