Freight initiatives

Why rail freight transport makes sense in the fight against climate change?

In the frame of COP21, UIC Members coordinating the "Train to Paris" Campaign promote passenger solutions and freight transport by rail as this activity also faces the key challenge of sustainability.
The following videos provided by Members of UIC, display projects initiated by organizations concerned by sustainable development throughout the world.

The rail sector has committed itself to several voluntary targets for the 2 degree scenario: limiting the global increase in temperature to 2°C. One of these targets is that rail share of freight land transport (tonne-km) should be equal with road by 2030 and 50% greater than road by 2050.
