Rail freight reduces CO2 Emissions and Energy Consumption
The railway reforms in the EU have consistently led to the liberalisation and internationalisation of the railway market over the past 15 years. State railways often no longer finance new wagons themselves. Therefore, the fleet of private owners and lessors is continuously growing. Due to the transport sector's high environmental impact, sustainable transport concepts will further strengthen rail freight transport as a whole, since the railway emits five times less CO2 per tonne-kilometre than lorries.
