Eco-Procurement for Rail
Setting the right environmental requirements to new railway rolling stock
Buying railway rolling stock is a very complex affair due to all the technical, operational and safety requirements existing within national and EU regulation. Concern for relevant environment and energy matters are often forgotten, neglected or deemed of limited importance. Nevertheless, the risk of doing nothing compared to the opportunity of timely actions is significant and provides its own business case.
You, as customer, foster eco-innovation by setting relevant, ambitious and transparent eco-requirements in the procurement phases of the rolling stock. The key element to succeed is applying UIC leaflet 345 and UIC/UNIFE TecRec 100_001 based on your defined eco-requirements.
