Increasing energy efficiency plays a key role in SBB’s energy strategy: efficiency will be increased by 30% by 2030.
In 2012, SBB launched its energy-saving programme: compared to the development of energy usage without any measures, the company will save 850 gigawatt hours (GWh) of energy every year by 2030. That is equivalent to CHF 85 million or the annual energy usage of approx. 200,000 Swiss households. More than 200 measures are being implemented across all units as part of the energy-saving programme and savings of over 500 gigawatt hours were achieved in 2021. SBB is thus making an important contribution towards shaping the growing mobility trend in a sustainable manner.
