Progress in climate protection

Since the year under review, we have been referring to our new climate target. By the year 2030, we will cut specific emissions of greenhouse gases (i.e. emissions based on volume sold) by more than half worldwide compared to 2006.

High share of renewable energies

Since January 1, 2018, all passengers on our long-distance trains throughout Germany have been traveling by 100% eco-power.

Since the beginning of the year under review, S-Bahn (metro) Berlin has also been operating CO₂-free, thereby contributing to the high proportion of ecopower in the DB traction current mix. S-Bahn (metro) Hamburg has been operating completely CO₂-free since 2010.

Stationary energy requirements reduced in stations, facilities and buildings

The about 5,400 stations and our maintenance facilities and buildings in Germany, as well as over 2,000 sites worldwide operated by DB Schenker, account for about 7% of DB Group’s total energy requirements.
