Rail and nature
An environment fit to live in, care in our dealings with the natural world, sustainable management of landscape and professional natural hazard management. We protect the natural world and our living environment.
For us, conservation of resources begins with preventing waste. Appropriate waste disposal and recycling are part of our everyday work.
Trains cause noise. Investment in sound insulation therefore means quality of life for our residents. We devote particular attention to information on construction and maintenance activities.
