Indian Railways become World's Largest Green Railways
Indian Railways are on their way to becoming the world's
"largest green railways," with zero carbon emissions.
Dedicated freight corridors are being developed into a
low-carbon green transportation network with a long-term low-carbon roadmap,
which will enable it to adopt more energy-efficient and carbon-friendly
technologies, processes and practices.
In 2016, an MoU was signed between Confederation of Indian
Industry and IR to facilitate green initiatives on IR.
Climate Change features have been incorporated into Indian
Railways' risk assessments and disaster management protocols.
The Environment Sustainability Report, published annually by
IR and subsidiary units, establishes a framework document defining strategies
and focal points in the context of climate change, the issues at stake, and
steps to address them.
