HOCHBAHN is going carbon neutral
Climate change affects us all! It is one of the most critical risks facing our world today. But we all have an important lever at our disposal when it comes to reducing CO2 emissions and meeting the 1.5 degree target set by the Paris Agreement: urban mobility. HOCHBAHN is well aware of the responsibility it carries on behalf of the city. Even now, 25% of Hamburg’s CO2 footprint can already be attributed to mobility. By 2050, 70 to 80% of the world’s population will live in cities. That’s why we need to set ourselves an ambitious target:
By the end of the next decade, HOCHBAHN will be entirely carbon neutral!
How will we do that?
With 100% high-quality certified green electricity
By investing in zero-emission buses only
With a fleet of vehicles that will be emission-free in the future
By reducing emissions produced from heating and cooling our operating and administrative locations
With compensation payments for any remaining CO2 emissions
We also keep a close eye on other indirect emissions, such as the CO2 footprint of procured products and services, and are working to continuously reduce these emissions as well.
