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.

Meeting and connecting

Travel has an important role in society: human contact is a basic necessity of life. Contact makes life more pleasant and richer. People meet each other by travelling. For this reason, access to mobility is an important condition to having an inclusive society in which everyone can participate. We want to enable passengers to make contact on the train or at the station.

With more than 1.5 million passengers using our trains and buses every day, and similar numbers visiting our stations, NS has a significant impact on Dutch society: on mobility, security, emissions and expenditure.

We are expected to provide environmentally friendly and pleasant transport. Environmental friendliness is a reason to choose to travel by train, especially for regular customers. For example, customers think it is important that NS uses green power. Three quarters of our employees consider sustainability to be important to NS.
