The great challenge for the transport system

The growing need to preserve the environment, to reduce greenhouse gases and to achieve complete sustainable development has become one of our society's key objectives.

In this context, the transport sector is facing the major challenge of providing transport solutions that are environmentally-friendly, yet which also meet the growing global demand for modern, comfortable transport networks.

The railway, the most efficient and competitive system

The considerable ecological benefits offered by the railway have made it the most efficient and competitive system around, with a tremendous potential to reduce the environmental impact, improve the quality of life of all citizens and actively contribute to the protection of the ecosystem.

A key role in the future economic and social development

According to the Green Jobs Initiative, part of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the International Work Organisation (IWO), the railway is one of the key sectors in the goal to achieve sustained social and economic growth, compatible with climate stabilisation.

CAF, key to a sustainable future

In this transition towards clean development, CAF plays a particularly important role, in view of its capacity to improve transport energy costs and to offer some highly efficient transport alternatives.

On the path to a sustainable future, the green footprint of the railway is making it possible to move towards balanced progress: clean, eco-friendly and emission-free.
