Environmental activity on a broad front

Rail is the most ecofriendly form of transport. VR Group is continuously developing its environmental activities.

In December 2007 VR published 12 environmental promises, which it intends to fulfil by 2012. So far the Group has switched to green electricity and halved the carbon dioxide emissions from its rail services. VR has also given high priority to reducing energy consumption and improving the tidiness of trains and railway stations.
