2017 Integrated Report – Departure into a new era


Anticipated development




Specific CO₂e emissions 1) compared to 2006 (%)




Share of renewable energies in the
DB traction current mix (%)




Noise-remediated track kilometers
in total (rounded) as of Dec 31 (km)




Quiet freight cars in Germany as of Dec 31




1) According to the newly defined climate target for 2030 including stationary energies.

We set new, ambitious climate protection targets in the year under review to be achieved by 2030 in the environmental dimension. #Climate protection We intend to reduce our specific greenhouse gas emissions by 50% compared to 2006. In terms of greenhouse gas emissions, we are already at a very good level following sustained strong improvements in shipping. The reduction of specific greenhouse gases emitted worldwide by our transport companies will also continue in 2018. Due to the switch to 100% eco-powerNO. 01 at DB Long-Distance, we expect a further increase in the share of renewable energies in the DB traction current mix.

The refitting of our freight carsNO. 05 is moving toward our target value for 2020.

With regard to noise protectionNO. 25, we expect additional noticeable relief for those residing close to railway tracks in 2018.
