THE ENVIRONMENT

When you think of railways, think “Green”! Railways are one of the most environmentally friendly modes of transportation with a significant environmental advantage over many other modes of surface transportation. Canada’s railways also work hard to ensure that the environment is respected and cared for throughout the entire rail network.

Fact: By volume, rail currently carries approximately 75 percent of Canada’s goods moved by land, but only contributes three percent of transport’s greenhouse gas emissions!

Fact: Rail provides an environmentally responsible alternative to the rapidly increasing problems of pollution, highway congestion, land use and massive highway infrastructure costs.

Fact: Modern locomotives can move a tonne of freight 169 kilometres on a litre of fuel!

When it comes to being kind to the environment, rail is definitely on the right track!
