Going Green – How Banks Are Supporting Environmentally Sustainable Projects with Green Loans

This article first appeared in the Railway-News Magazine Issue 2 2024.

Green loans can help rail organisations get closer to achieving their sustainability goals.

Businesses are prioritising climate neutrality and environmental sustainability more than ever before. Today, stories of the climate crisis make national headlines, and with new record-breaking temperatures reported every month, the world is focused on climate action.

An international goal, known as the Paris Agreement, aims to keep the increase of the average global temperature below 2°C, and also to pursue efforts to keep this rise as close as possible to 1.5°C.

This is no simple task. However, the rail industry has an important role to play in getting us closer to this objective by providing greener transport solutions. As it currently stands, rail travel is already less polluting than travel by road, but new lower emission and carbon-neutral technologies such as battery electric and hydrogen-powered trains are helping to reduce the sector’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions even further.
