DB Cargo supports the DB Group to reduce specific CO₂ emissions by 20 percent. To reach this goal, it has launched a variety of initiatives and is continuing to expand its range of green products.
Acting with the environment in mind is an important issue at DB Cargo, which is supported through initiatives in the business units. Examples include continuing to improve the capacity utilization of our modes of transportation, modernizing our equipment and facilities across the board, using a low-emission fleet and teaching our drivers energy-saving driving techniques.
DB Cargo already offers Eco Solutions for every mode of transportation, allowing customers to reduce, compensate for or avoid CO₂ emissions altogether along the entire supply chain. We offer a CO₂-free product for rail transport and can cut CO₂ emissions by up to 20 percent in air freight and up to 50 percent in ocean freight. Environmentally friendly solutions are also available for land transport and contract logistics using energy-efficient, sustainable warehouses. DB Cargo can make the CO₂ footprint of its customers’ supply chains transparent and can offer recommendations for optimization.
