New UIC publication: Rail and Sustainable Development

The UIC Environment and Communications departments have produced a new brochure on railways and sustainability. Using data from UIC Statistics, case studies on particular issues and published environmental strategies, the brochure paints a broad picture of the ways in which the global railway sector is contributing to a more sustainable future - in economic, social and environmental terms. The document captures some of the highlights of UIC’s own as well as members’ work in this crucial area, and summarises the future plans for further improvement.

The brochure is being distributed by UIC at the United Nations this week and is a key tool in the sustainability communications on behalf of UIC members. It is available online at: http://www.uic-sustainability.org/spip.php?rubrique9
