By choosing rail, you can reduce your CO2e emissions by 80% compared to other methods of transporting freight. The emissions values provided for individual connections are calculated based on the relevant transport route and corresponding transport method, an average transport load of 100 tonnes and greenhouse gas emissions values for various modes of transport (in CO2e). The source for our emissions values is the German Environment Agency
. To calculate the emissions of your own freight transport, please use EcoTransIT World
. Note: CO2e (CO2 equivalent) is a unit of measurement which allows the effect of different greenhouse gases to be compared. To calculate emissions values, the German Environment Agency has converted the greenhouse gases carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) into their CO2 equivalents.
