A critical aspect of our commitment to the livelihood of our people and industry, is ensuring we deliver on positive environmental impacts. Today, rail is the most fuel-efficient form of surface transportation and with its continued growth and innovation, the industry can be a contributing solution to climate change.
We are continually exploring opportunities to accelerate our impact, prioritizing investments in new sustainable technologies and practices across our markets:
- In the U.S., the Iowa Interstate is an EPA Smart Way Member and currently has a fleet of 20 fuel-efficient GEVO locomotives, using Trip Optimizer software to reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
- In France, we are the transportation operator of choice for many companies because of rail’s low carbon footprint.
- In Germany, we have two Vectron electric locomotives.
- In the U.K., Vivarail is building emission-free battery trains, key to decarbonizing the sector.
