  • CER/UIC STRATEGY - Moving towards sutainable mobility

    European railways will reduce their specific average CO2 emissions from train operation by 30% compared to the 1990 base year, measured per passenger-km (passenger service) and tonne-km (freight service)

  • CER/UIC STRATEGY - Moving towards sustainable mobility

    • European railways will reduce their specific average CO2 emissions from train operation by 50% compared to the 1990 base year, measured per passenger-km (passenger service) and tonne-km (freight service)
    • European railways will reduce their specific final energy consumption from train operation by 30% compared to the 1990 base year, measured per passenger- km and tonne-km
    • European railways will reduce their total exhaust emissions of NOx and PM10 by 40% in absolute terms, even with projected traffic growth compared to the 2005 base year

    EUROPEAN COMMISSION TRANSPORT WHITE PAPER
     

    • 30% of road freight over 300km should shift to other modes such as rail or waterborne transport by 2030, and more than 50% by 2050
    • The length of the existing high- speed rail network will be tripled
    • A fully functional and EU-wide multimodal TEN-T 'core network' will be achieved

  • "CHALLENGE 2050" - The rail sector vision

    • Rail is at the heart of an integrated, attractive transport system in which each mode plays to its strengths, enabling a more competitive European economy
    • Rail is central to delivery of a strategy that has resulted in a massive cut in Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions, reduced oil dependency and mitigated the challenge of congestion
    • Rail is the enabling factor for sustainable mobility that underpins economic growth and a dynamic society

    EUROPEAN COMMISSION TRANSPORT WHITE PAPER

    • 50% of road freight over 300 km should be shifted to other modes such as rail or waterbone transport
    • European high-speed network is completed and the majority of medium-distance passenger transport should go by rail
