966 tonnes less CO2 in 2012 due to Eco-friendly rail transport with green electricity





DB Schenker Rail calculates the power consumption for the transport in advance and supplies the required amount of green electricity to the traction power network. 10 percent of the revenues from Eco Plus also flow into the construction of new facilities for producing and storing electricity from renewable sources.

Thus, due to this environmentally friendly solution, 966 tonnes of CO2 were saved compared to traditional rail transport, or even 4849 tonnes of CO2 compared to transport by truck in 2012.

Vinnolit deliberately focuses both in terms of raw material procurement, as well as the delivery of their products on environmentally friendly 'green' logistics by maximising transport by rail, barge and pipeline.
