In the interests of the environment
One Group – one goal
DB Schenker is on its way to becoming the leading provider of Green Logistics services. We enhance the carbon footprint of our customers. That means we devise and optimize the customer's transport chain according to both economical and ecological aspects.
Since 1990 the DB Group reduced its specific carbon emissions in rail transport, i.e. carbon emissions per passenger or ton of freight and kilometer, by nearly 45 percent.
Group-wide environmental targets
DB AG has developed Group-wide environmental targets based on its experience in rail transport. Deutsche Bahn has established its "Climate Protection Program 2020" to reduce its specific carbon emissions by 20 percent from 2006 to 2020 – on land, sea and in the air. The program naturally includes the freight forwarding and logistics areas, as well as stationary processes. Major contributions will be made primarily by sensibly linking various modes of transport, by new and energy-efficient vehicles, achieving an even greater capacity utilization rate for the vehicles and in fuel-efficient driving methods used by specially trained truck and train drivers.
Environmental targets of DB Schenker
DB Schenker is on its way to becoming the leading provider of Green Logistics services. Our logistics network comprises all modes of transport from rail to truck, through to air and ocean freight as well as logistics services. Thanks to this broad spectrum of expertise, DB Schenker can pursue a comprehensive approach to environmental protection and offer our customers the most useful service – in both economical and ecological terms.
DB Schenker is realizing enormous possibilities for carbon savings above all by intelligently linking together the various modes of transport. Further carbon reduction can also be achieved by:
- Conserving the environment by offering new green solutions
- Combating global warming by increasing energy efficiency
- Reducing dependency on fossil fuels by expanding the use of renewables
