Challenges for the railway industry

Rail transport contributes to the sustainability transition, by offering one of the most environmentally friendly ways of transporting passengers and goods, while maintaining a fast service and a cost-effective approach.


Compliance to existing regulations

  • Stringent regulations on material traceability like REACh & RoHS, WEEE decrlarations and Environmental Product Declarations for public tenders, and Sustainable Product Initiative

  • 50+ Regulations & Initiatives adopted over the past 2 years


It's all about scope 3: upstream & downstream activities

Supply chain is a big contributor of carbon emissions Part of carbon footprint (scope 3) reduction implies product design changes. Waste is valuable and should lead to recycling loops for plastic, batteries, composites, materials & electronics - thanks to new industrial alliances


Materials & components

Steel prices have risen by 50% since the beginning of 2021 while copper prices have risen by nearly 10% in December 2020. For example, current semi-conductors scarcity illustrates the short/mid-term challenge to access materials resources
