CO2 reduced and emitted:

CO2 emissions from rail service CO2 emissions avoided from rail service
2018 4 846 T CO2 79 661 T CO2
2019 (September) 3 832 T CO2 62 029 T CO2

Cumulative emissions avoided thanks to VIIA since 2003: 690,220 T CO2 ≈, the equivalent of the carbon footprint of 62,500 French people for one year.

  • 94% of CO2 emissions avoided compared to the same distances by road
  • 30 T CO2 avoided by using the train compared to the same distances by roads (≈ 2 T CO2 emitted/train)

Breakdown of CO2 emissions:

  • 80% of CO2 emissions come from rail hauling (subcontracted), 80% from rail hauling in France and 20% from rail hauling in Europe
  • 20% of CO2 emissions come from operations at multimodal platforms and VIIA headquarters (energy, travel, waste)
