Environmental Protection

The Havelländische Eisenbahn AG is serious about its ecological responsibility

The railroad’s wheel-rail principle has always been considered one of the most efficient transportation systems, with a high degree of environmental compatibility.

In order to fulfill our ecological responsibility, we, the Havelländische Eisenbahn AG, are committed to the uninterrupted, continuous development of our climate-friendly, future-oriented transportation system.

A considerable part of the resources earmarked for research and development are applied towards the ecological optimization of the transportation services we perform.

We especially focus on the optimization of energy efficiency and the minimization of noise emissions. Our extremely modern fleet of locomotives and increasing usage of composite brake pads on freight wagons are just two examples of how we work towards these important goals.

The Havelländische Eisenbahn AG is a certified waste management company and also a member of the Disposal Industry Transport and Environmental Association.

Current projects

  • CO2 – Management system: IT-supported balancing of CO2 emissions of our freight transports
  • Reduction of operating noise through use of modern brake technology
