COP26 - Message to Glasgow

Rail is the most sustainable mode of motorised transport today, already avoiding millions of tons of CO2. As world leaders gather for the COP26 international climate change conference in Glasgow to take new steps towards achieving the Paris agreement objective of limiting global warming to 1.5°, CER joined other rail partners in marking our commitment to this massive communal effort. We propose to show more ambition and call on governments to give rail an even more central role in tackling this challenge.

The message was signed onboard the Climate Train to COP26, which travelled from Amsterdam to Glasgow on 30 October 2021. You can find out more about the Climate Train here and read the partners' full pledge below.
