Main EU initiatives covered the year before by activities falling under the scope of the Transparency Register:

Support of the EU transport policies aiming at sustainable economic and social development and mobility, related to:
• revitalizing rail and public transport,
• developing a framework for fair competition between the modes of transport,
• developing an internal railway market, liberalized and with fair intra- modal competition,
• R&D support of this environmentally friendly mode of transport,
• a cohesion policy to revitalize rail transport also in the new member states,
• developing and ensuring fair international trading conditions to avoid discrimination of EU rail industry

The Climate is Right for Trains

Rail is the most sustainable mode of transit. For every passenger-km shifted from road to rail transport, 70% of the emitted CO2 would be avoided. As the global leader in rail technology, we view it as our corporate responsibility to maximize the environmental benefits of rail travel. That's why we have put sustainable mobility at the heart of our design, engineering and operating philosophy.

Our key business goals for sustainability include:
- being profitable, while delivering safe and competitive products to our customers
- optimizing the environmental performance of our vehicles
- leaving to the next generations an environment unspoiled by our industry activities and products, to the best of our ability
- being a preferred employer by providing interesting, healthy and safe working places
- transferring best practices and knowledge, especially in less industrialized countries where we have a presence

Our mission is to be the first choice for customers, the best performer in the industry and the most exciting place to be. We do so by:
- providing superior value and service to our customers through first rate total systems integration and project management
- creating profitable growth by investing in our people and products
- optimizing safety, efficiency and environmental performance of our products
- setting high standards and delivering as promised
