Travelling by rail reduces environmental impact, saves resources, energy and space, and produces comparatively low CO2 emissions. SBB is Switzerland's largest provider of sustainable mobility and one of the country's most significant employers.
This brings with it a binding commitment to economic, environmental and social sustainability. SBB consistently takes sustainability criteria into account along the entire value chain – from procurement, to production, use and disposal.
“Digitalisation will make our customers’ day-to-day lives easier, increase the value for money they are getting and support our work. It also provides many opportunities for sustainability. For example, thanks to the smart utilisation of our rail capacity, we are able to operate up to 30 percent more trains without having to carry out expensive, resource-intensive expansion work. Our trains are becoming smarter and require less power for the same performance. At the same time, it is important to me that our employees do their bit for digitalisation. In order to do this, we are working together to develop our visions. We want to use digitalisation to continue to be a strong and sustainable railway company and to shape the mobility of the future.”
