German railway operator Deutsche Bahn has managed to cut its carbon dioxide emissions by over a quarter between 1990 and 2002, meeting a company goal three years ahead of schedule. A shift from diesel to electric-powered trains is credited. Railways now account for just 4% of German transport CO2 emissions, the company estimates. As well as CO2 cuts, the firm said it had cut fine particle emissions by 30% in the last two years alone. The figures are included in Deutsche Bahn's latest annual environment report.
