Green Projects as integral part of
Russian Railways long-term investment objectives

One of the Russian Railways key strategic objectives by 2030 is priority use of green technologies and a double decrease in environmental load, recognizing that railway is still one of the transportation modes with the lowest level of harmful effects on environment.

Rail transport = Green transport

Rail transport is one of the most environmentally-friendly modes of transport. The energy efficiency of rail transport is better than automobile transport by 2-3 times, both in freight and passenger transportation. More than a half (43.8 thousand km) of the 85.6 thousand km of operational length of Russian railways is electrified. Moreover, more than 86% of the cargo and the passengers are transported on electrified rail systems.. According to the International Energy Agency and International Union of Railways1, Russian Railways is one of the most energy efficient railway companies across the globe. Russia ranks first in energy efficiency of freight rail traffic compared with other European rail systems, the railways of China, Japan, India and the USA, and ranks fourth place in passenger rail traffic energy efficiency after India, China and Japan.
