Green & Energy-efficient Transportation

Trains are not just the safest way to transport freight - they are also green and amongst the most energy efficient mode of transportation. Why? Because they generate up to 80% less CO2 and consume 75-90% less energy for freight traffic than road transport.

Railways carries significant amount of nation's freight, and what we transport touches individuals in all walks of life. We do this while

  • Reducing Carbon Emissions
  • Saving on Fuel Costs
  • Relieving Highway Congestion

Transporting goods by train also provides benefits to the environment beyond fuel efficiency and sustainability, it reduces supply chain costs, allowing Indian businesses to be more competitive in the global market.

Rail Green Point (RGP)

To make freight customers aware about how much carbon emission they have saved by opting to transport by Railways in comparison with road, Indian Railways have decided to credit Rail Green Points (RGPs) to the customers. The carbon saving is estimated in terms of TonnesCO2 and credited to the customer as Rail Green Points (RGPs). A RGP account is maintained for every freight customer on his dashboard. Once Railway Receipt (RR) is generated, the RGPs earned are credited to the RGP account of the customer. The cumulative RGPs of a customer are shown in his RGP account on Freight Business Development portal.
