Pioneers in sustainability

Society, the economy and ecology. For us sustainability means capacity for the future, though a balance, as well-adjusted as possible, between economic, ecological and social objectives.

We are creating the conditions for mobility compatible with future needs

ÖBB-Infrastruktur is practising sustainability now in its corporate purpose, in order to construct and operate 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

In the most recent, independently-conducted evaluation, conducted by the international ratings agency, oekom research, which was published in 2014, we have achieved first place. A total of 44 transport infrastructures from Europe, the USA, Brazil, Asia and Australia are subjected to a stringent inspection. Only five of them reached Prime Status. Since 2012 ÖBB-Infrastruktur has twice been the winner. oekom research is one of the leading ratings agencies in the world in the corporate responsibility sector. It specialises in analysis and evaluation of companies' ecological and social services, which attract money from the equity for funding. The evaluation by oekom research shows that we are among the best in the comparable international sector.
