Environmental Benefits

Etihad Rail’s approach to sustainable development stems from our fundamental intent to prosper as a business while meeting the energy needs of present and future generations.

Truck Vs Trains

Studies show that trains are one of the most environmentally friendly modes of transport

Based on forecasted traffic volumes, the Etihad Rail network will reduce greenhouse gases by more than 2.2 million tonnes annually – the equivalent of removing 375,000 vehicles off the roads.

A single freight train’s journey can carry the load of up to 300 trucks, thus reducing traffic congestion, accidents and road maintenance.

One fully loaded train produces 70-80% less CO2 emissions than the equivalent number of trucks required to transport the same quantities.
