Sustainable travel: now and in the future
Sustainable travel is travelling while taking the environment, people, nature and culture into account. We contribute to a better environment by improving energy efficiency, further ruducing CO2 emissions and consciously dealing with energy sources.
Less CO2 emissions
Calculations of Milieu Centraal indicate that international train travel produces an average of 2 to 4 times less CO2 emission per passenger than a car with two people. In addition, the train emits an average of 7 times less than a flight to the same destination.
CO2 comparison app during your trip
Besides checking travel time and price you can use the travel planner app to see exactly how much CO2 you save by taking the train. With the CO2 comparison you can also compare the planned train journey with the same trip with different types of cars. The CO2 comparison has been adapted, because you emit even less CO2 emissions due to the use of wind energy. The CO2 comparison was developed in collaboration with Milieu Centraal.
