With Strong Rail, we have anchored sustainability as a central purpose in our Group strategy. With the Green Transformation and our social responsibility, we are pursuing a holistic approach that encompasses the entire Deutsche Bahn Group.
Everyone at Deutsche Bahn is dedicated to an ambitious climate protection goal: Becoming completely climate neutral by 2040. We have adopted stringent incremental targets that will help us achieve this objective.
We take responsibility for ensuring that our ecosystem remains healthy. DB's Green Transformation sees us working on solutions that benefit biodiversity.
We only have this one planet with its unique ecosystem. That's why we at Deutsche Bahn want to have implemented a complete circular economy by 2040.
Quiet trains make for Strong Rail. That is why we at Deutsche Bahn are working to minimize railway noise for over 50% of people affected by 2030 and for everyone affected by 2050.
To allow trains reliable and safe travel on the line, Deutsche Bahn carries out sustainable vegetation management in and around the track.
There are places where we cannot use electricity to bring goods and people to their destinations. We are therefore developing green solutions that help with aspects such as refueling our diesel fleet on rail and road.
Clay, sand, gravel and stone: Each year, we extract tons of material from the ground when building new tunnels or cuttings. The digital marketplace Erdpool allows us to put the excavated minerals into the cycle.
We are taking a new approach to wildlife conservation. When starting a new construction project, we plan to deploy special sniffer dogs so we can locate protected species at the site.
At Deutsche Bahn, we shape the lives and work of many people. That is why it is important for us to strengthen the sense of community between us all and set a good example.
As a large company at the heart of society, we encounter many social concerns. We feel obligated to give back to society in a variety of ways. Deutsche Bahn Foundation, our independent charitable arm, plays a vital role in this regard.
Our society is diverse. That is why we promote diversity as an integral part of our corporate culture, both internally and externally.
We are aware that our company has a complex past within the broader context of Germany's history. We believe it is important to preserve the memory of the past, while looking forward for the sake of future generations.
At Deutsche Bahn's Sustainability Forum, decision-makers from politics, business, civil society and science meet to discuss the challenges of the future.
Deutsche Bahn is an important part of society and public life. As a result, it is essential for us to maintain a dialogue for partnership and a relationship built on trust with our stakeholders.
With the DB Train Simulator, anyone can become a virtual train driver and learn how to get a train to its destination using as little energy as possible.
