Railsponsible is looking forward to Innotrans 2018, the premier railway event in Europe, and is pleased to have a significant presence at the event.

Members from Railsponsible will be present during the event to discuss the initiative. In addition, Railsponsible is holding a dedicated side-event:

Climate Workshop and Supplier Award

Following the publication of the Railsponsible Climate Change Position Paper, Railsponsible will host a side-event to discuss next steps and concrete ways for member companies to act on climate change. The agenda will include:

  • Introduction by Stefan Burkle, Chair of Railsponsible and CPO of SNCF
  • Climate Workshop with member companies and external expert (TBD)
  • Presentation of the Climate Position Paper
  • Members’ latest actions on climate
  • From Railsponsible’s perspective, what should suppliers do?

This discussion will be followed by the presentation of the Railsponsible Climate Change Supplier Award.

The members of Railsponsible support the agreement made during COP21 (the Paris Climate Summit 2016) and its goal of limiting the increase in global average temperature to well below 2°C. Members also support the renewed awareness within the business community that all economic sectors need to further strengthen their commitments and actions to address climate change.

Railsponsible members hope to show what good climate practice for the rail sector, including the rail supply chain, might look like. This year’s Railsponsible supplier award therefore focuses on Climate Change.
