Our commitment to the future
We care for environmental issues and support the contribution that rail makes as a socially and environmentally responsible means of transport for people and goods.
„We act sustainably!“
As a leasing company we are an enabler of modal shift from road to rail and we play an important role in the overall environmental impact of transport.
