CFL cargo Deutschland GmbH – a subsidiary of the CFL cargo Group, located in Flensburg, near the German-Danish border – has announced that, as of 2020, it has introduced 100 per cent clean, renewable electricity for use on all of its trains. The introduction of green electricity enables the environmentally friendly operation of up to 3,250 block trains that circulate in Germany each year.
By purchasing certified renewable electricity – currently being supplied by Stadtwerke Tübingen GmbH – rail transport becomes even more sustainable. This measure is, subsequently, yet another commitment towards an annual carbon emission saving of approximately 19,000 tonnes of CO2, when compared to the average German electricity mix.
CFL cargo Deutschland is an important traction provider working on the German and Central European axis. The shift to exclusively renewable electricity generated by wind and hydro assets is an important investment in sustainable logistics across Europe.
In recent years, the CFL cargo Group has become determined to be a driving force for sustainable development and social responsibility, supporting initiatives such as Noah’s Train, a project of the Rail Freight Forward Alliance.
