Sustainable entrepreneurship

Are you looking for ways to do business more sustainably? Then consider travelling by train for business. Travelling by train contributes to more sustainable operations.


Sustainable Energy

All NS trains run entirely on green electricity generated by wind energy. That means you can travel without CO2 emissions, while saving money on your mobility costs.

The train is energy efficient

In addition to the climate-neutral kilometres, 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, these measures have reduced our energy consumption by 30%. But we can always do better, so we will continue to work on improving our energy efficiency.

Re-using waste

NS aims to return all waste products to the raw material cycle in cooperation with its suppliers. All of the waste that we produce at the stations, in the trains, on location and in our offices will be reprocessed into raw materials as sustainably as possible. 

NS has set the goal of re-using 75% of all waste products by 2020.
