More sustainable entrepreneurship

Are you looking for ways to make your business more sustainable? Traveling by train contributes to more sustainable operations. All NS trains run using green electricity.

Climate neutral travel

Business travel is a major, often unnoticed, cause of a company's environmental pollution. If you would like to make your business more socially responsible, then switching from travelling by car to travelling by train may be a good idea, and it saves you money on your mobility expenses.

Travelling by train is completely climate neutral. All our trains run on green electricity. We have reached an agreement with Eneco which allows passengers to travel without CO2 emissions. As a result, you can significantly lower your company's CO2 emissions by travelling by train.

The train is energy efficient

In addition, the train uses energy more efficiently. We at NS have achieved this by efforts such as:

  • Using trains that consume less energy
  • Modernising the double-deckers to make them 20% more efficient
  • Introducing EnergyEfficient Engineering: accelerating quickly and letting the train coast to a stop.

Over the past 10 years, we have reduced our energy consumption by 30%. But we can always do better, so we will continue to work on improving our energy efficiency.
