    Making railways greener, quieter and more energy efficient

    Achieving sustainable development is one of the main global challenges. Transport, both of people and goods, has major environmental impacts such as emissions of pollutants and noise or land use. UIC and its members must demonstrate how rail can be part of the solution for many of the challenges the world is facing.
    In recent years, civil society, citizens and decision makers have become much more aware of rail transport’s role as a key factor in achieving sustainable development and reducing the effects of climate change. UIC has built constructive links of cooperation between the relevant actors worldwide and continues to advocate the benefi ts of a strong railway system for sustainable development.
    While the shift to more sustainable transport modes is important, railway companies must also strive to improve their own sustainability performance (in terms of environmental, social and economic impacts).
    UIC offers its members its expertise on sustainability issues and its experience working in close cooperation with high-level stakeholders, as for example in the UN framework or with other important and worldwide organizations.
    Together with its members, UIC continues its eff orts to daily promote the benefi ts of rail in order to meet the global challenges of mobility and sustainable development and to communicate the sustainable development advantages of the railway sector.
