Environmental management

Russian Railways maintains leadership in energy efficiency and environmental friendliness generating only 1% of all polluting emissions coming from all transport segments.

In 2022, Russian Railways initiated adding a clause on the need to prioritise railway as one of the greenest modes of transport to the BRICS Business Council recommendations to the leaders of member states. To put the initiative to work, the parties involved consider creating a coordination mechanism for the exchange of experience and the development of joint railway projects.
