Freight Railroads are Addressing Climate Change
For nearly 200 years, freight railroads have provided modern transportation solutions to American businesses and consumers. As freight demand is expected to rise 30% by 2040, the nation’s railroads want to be — and must be — a part of the solution to climate change. Thanks to targeted investments, innovative technology and evolving operations, railroads are the most fuel-efficient way to move freight over land. With policies grounded in data that encourage innovation, leverage market-based competition and allow for varied approaches among multiple stakeholders, freight railroads will deliver a more sustainable future for all.
