Building a sustainable future together

With our partners, we contribute to the safety, quality and sustainability of rail transport. With safe and sustainable working methods.

Our targets

We put safe and healthy working conditions first, and we are committed to achieving circular operations by 2030 and reducing carbon emissions by at least 55% relative to 2009 levels. One way we will achieve the latter is by cuatting emissions on all construction sites to zero by 2025 and having CO2 emissions from business travel by 2030 in comparison to what they were in 2016. We are also seeking to schieve at least net neutrality in terms of our impact on natural capital by 2030.

Our ambition

We are proud of our social role in the creation and maintenance of safe and accessible infrastructures and a sustainable living environment. However, our sector has significant impact on society, both as to the use of raw materials, and as to waste and emissions and biodiversity. This brings great responsibility, but also opportunities to make the world more sustainable. We therefore take an active role when it comes to corporate social responsibility (CSR). We do so together with our chain partners.

Sustainable Development Goals

We have integrated the SDGs in our CSR strategy. Strukton Rail focuses on SDG 7, 8, 9, 12, 13 and 15 in particular, since it is those SDGs where we can make the difference with our activities. This does not mean that we don’t contribute to other SDGs.

  • SDG 7 – Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all

    We help accellerate the energy transition by proactively developing technology contributing to a sustainable world. For instance, we are developing methods to feed back solar energy to the catenary system and develop our own battery trains to replace diesel locomotives. We also develop smart grid concepts. And use renewable energy wherever possible.

  • SDG 8 – Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all

    We are committed to bring everyone safely and healthily back home and to retirement. This means that safety and health are always top priority. With our 24Safe programme, we create safe and healthy working environments. In addition to physical aspects, we also focus on the mental toughness and health of colleagues. We promote a healthy lifestyle through vitality programmes. We aim at decent work for all employees and equal pay for equal work. We are working in a labour-intensive sector. We apply technical and technological innovations to improve economic productivity. In addtion, we continue to reduce our (energy) consumption and aim to (re)use resources as efficiently as possible.

  • SDG 12 – Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns

    In the entire supply chain, we aim at the efficient use of (reusable) materials and the reduction of packaging materials. This reduces waste in air, water and soil. If packaging is required, we aim at circular packaging. We are also reducing the use of polluting energy resources. Our machines are running on sustainable bio fuels whenever possible. And we are electrifying our equipment, machines, and cars and are investing in battery technology.

  • SDG 13 – Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts

    We are helping the world to prepare for the impact of climate change. We are enabling one of the most sustainable modes of transport. In our company ánd in our work, we focus on the reduction of energy consumption and aim at emission-free working methods. In so doing, we contribute to the reduction of our climate impact.

Working together

Working on a better world can only be done together. We therefore collaborate intensively with other Strukton companies. We work according to one Strukton csr policy, share equal targets and report together. Lots of information is gathered on the Strukton website.

Collaboration also means that we are commited to work together with customers, suppliers, consultancy companies, knowledge and training institutes, and other stakeholders.
