Sustainability at NS
From an economic and social perspective, mobility has many benefits for the Netherlands, but on the other hand it also has environmental and health costs due to emission of CO2 and particulate matter. Sustainable travel is important to securing the future of travel and keeping the Netherlands mobile.
With more than 1.5 million journeys made using trains and buses, and roughly the same number of visits to our stations, NS has a significant impact on Dutch society: in terms of mobility, safety, emissions and expenditures. That is why NS considers sustainability to be so important.
Our ambition is to make climate neutral travel possible by 2020. For our customers, our planet and our future.
