Environmental Benefits

Etihad Rail’s approach to sustainable development stems from its fundamental intent to prosper as a business while meeting the energy needs of present and future generations.

For example, one fully laden freight train trip on Stage One can replace approximately 300 trucks on the road, thus reducing congestion and improving safety. A fully loaded train produces up to 70-80% less CO2 emissions than trucks moving the same tonnage. Rail transport lowers the cost of trade and improves the market position of existing industries, promoting their growth and leading to economic diversification through the creation of a new transport infrastructure and its related ecosystem.

Truck Vs Trains

Studies conclusively show that trains are one of the most environmentally friendly modes of transport.
