NS: sustainable travel

A mobile, accessible society helps to ensure a healthy, vibrant economy. Travelling by train is better for the environment than many other forms of transport. What's more, the train connects people and facilitates social contact. NS is at the forefront of sustainable mobility and wants to retain this advantage. 

With more than 1.3 million people travelling by train and bus every day and almost as many people visiting our stations, NS has a major impact on Dutch society. When you travel with us, your travel is climate-neutral. This means that it's energy-efficient and powered by green energy free of CO2 emissions. We also endeavour to pursue a circular business model. That means minimising the use of new raw materials and reusing them wherever possible. We make all of these efforts in cooperation with our partners.
