Sustainable construction sites.

SBB is committed to decarbonised litter-free construction sites with low light emissions.

When tracks or other railway installations have to be repaired, this often has negative impacts on the environment, staff and local residents. SBB is therefore continually improving the environmental conditions on its construction sites. The company intends to operate resource-saving CO2-free construction sites by 2040. As long as safety is ensured, SBB reduces the lighting on construction sites to a minimum to save energy and protect people and animals from the negative impacts of artificial light. Mobile waste disposal buckets are used to ensure that no waste collects around construction sites due to littering.
