Travelling by train is beneficial for the environment. It means that emissions are extremely low and it is an energy-efficient way to travel. Did you know that after cycling, taking the train is the best way to travel from an environmental perspective.
Our trains are operated 100% on electricity that carries the “Good Environmental Choice” label or green electricity as it is also known. This means that the electricity comes from renewable energy sources, such as hydropower, wind power and biofuels. Good Environmental Choice is the only environmental certification that places stringent environmental requirements on production. This differentiates Good Environmental Choice from ordinary renewable electricity, which only guarantees that the electricity comes from renewable energy without making any environmental demands.
A-train Net Zero Strategy
We are actively working to reduce our emissions and we have a comprehensive strategy to become net zero by the end 2025/2026 within scope 1 and 2.
To achieve this, we’ve developed a detailed business plan that includes several actions:
We will replace all fossil diesel in our facilities with HVO100 in 2023
We also intend to refuel our diesel locomotive with HVO 100 in 2023
Two company diesel cars will be replaced with electric vehicles leasing agreement
We are investigating the possibilities to install solar panels on the roof of Blackvreten depot
For the emissions that remain, we climate compensate through certified Gold standard projects:
