"On the low carbon track"

From Copenhagen 2009 to Paris 2015!
Let’s continue our journey!

The UIC co-ordinated campaign “Train to Paris” will bring delegates including national governments, NGOs, decision-makers and journalists from across Europe and Asia by train to Paris for the COP21 United Nations Conference on Climate Change to be held end of 2015 in Paris.

Train to Paris campaign will climax at its main event on 28 November.

Together let’s build a more sustainable future!
Together, let’s take the Train to Paris!

Check your emissions!

Check the emissions of your travel and the travel of the products you buy in the best possible way! EcoPassenger and EcoTransIT are two user-friendly internet tools to compare the energy consumption, CO2- and exhaust atmospheric emissions for planes, cars and trains (and trucks) in Europe. With “the best possible way” we mean the most fair and comprehensive way. The methodology behind the calculations are sound scientific, focusing on a life cycle approach to the energy involved, and approved by the European Environment Agency.

Compare the energy consumption, the CO2 emissions and other environmental impacts for planes, cars and trains in passenger transport.
