Russian Railways traditionally joins in the celebration of World Environment Day on 5 June

As well as the transportation of goods and passengers, Russian Railways also works to protect the environment, use natural resources wisely and maintain a favorable environmental situation in railway transport’s zone of influence.

The Company’s implementation of the Ecological Strategy of Russian Railways for the period 2007-2018 resulted in a 60% decrease in the emission of harmful substances into the atmosphere and a 70% reduction of discharges of polluted wastewater. Over the same timeframe, the Company increased the share of neutralisation and waste management in economic circulation by 16.6%.
