Pioneer in sustainability

Society, economy and ecology. For us sustainability means capacity for the future, by achieving a fair balance between economic, ecological and social objectives.

We are creating the prerequisites for future-oriented mobility

Sustainability is an inherent part of our corporate purpose: construction and operation of  infrastructure for future generations. The high social, economic and of course, ecological sustainability of rail as a transport infrastructure is a decisive contribution to the sustainable development of Austria.

Prime status of ÖBB-Infrastruktur

We managed to come first in the most recent, independently-conducted evaluation, performed by the international ratings agency, oekom research, which was published in 2014. A total of 44 transport infrastructure companies from Europe, the USA, Brazil, Asia and Australia were examined and assessed. Only five of them reached prime status. Since 2012 ÖBB-Infrastruktur has twice been the winner. In the corporate responsibility sector, oekom research is one of the leading ratings agencies in the world. It specialises in analysis and evaluation of companies' ecological and social services, that receive capital from the financial market. The evaluation by oekom research shows that we are internationally among the best.
