Rail mobilises against climate change.
- We humans are overtaxing the earth.
CO2 emissions account for more than half of the human ecological footprint. This is one of the main reasons why this year is Earth Overshoot Day on 28 July.
From this day on, all natural resources that the Earth can restore within the year 2022 are used up.

- 80 % lower CO2 emissions.
Freight transport by rail is significantly more climate-friendly than by lorries.
- 1 freight train replaces up to 52 lorries.
This means less congestion and fewer exhaust fumes.
- Lorries can also transport by rail.
DB Cargo takes 22 million lorries off our congested roads every year.
That's how many tonnes of CO2 we are already saving.
Get more lorries off the road with us.
If there is a consistent switch to rail, CO2 emissions from freight transport will immediately drop significantly. An important step towards achieving the Paris climate goals. And to move Earth Overshoot Day back towards the end of the year.
