Although railway is one of the most environmentally friendly modes of transport, producing eight times less carbon emissions per ton-kilometre than other modes of transport, this sector also forms a part of the impact of human activity on the environment and climate as a whole.

The specialists responsible for the implementation and monitoring of environmental and energy management programmes in SJSC Latvijas dzelzceļš, carry out an annual assessment of the tasks and objectives contained in the programme and, if necessary, encourage amendments to promote a more responsible environmental action.

The environmental policy is binding on the whole Latvijas dzelzceļš Group, therefore subsidiaries also are required to implement environmentally-friendly solutions in their daily activities.
