With about 32,300, employees, the Swiss Federal Railways move people and goods, connect centres and open up different parts of the country. As an efficient, forward-looking and sustainable railway, SBB provides its customers with positive travel experiences and transports their goods reliably and resource-efficiently: a rail journey in Switzerland is about 6 times more energy-efficient and emits 27 times less CO2 than a journey by car over a comparable distance. With its sustainable and energy efficient mobility offering, SBB thus contributes significantly to the implementation of the Federal Government’s Energy Strategy 2050.

Energy strategy

From 2025 onwards, the SBB’s trains are to run on power from 100% renewable energy. SBB is planning to save about 20% of the annual consumption forecast for 2025, or a total of 600 GWh of energy per year, with an extensive package of measures.
