The & of climate neutral

Every day 600,000 rail passengers in the Netherlands travel in a 100% climate-neutral way. This is a world first. Nowhere else in the world do passenger trains run on 100% wind energy. The partnership with NS is special. Together we’re helping to make the Netherlands sustainable.

It’s real teamwork.” NS and Eneco discovered a common objective to ensure that all trains became climate-neutral. Presenter Froukje Jansen learned more about this special collaboration.
