SNCF Réseau and sustainable development

Our approach to social responsibility is geared around the challenges that face the rail system—protecting the environment, taking care of our employees and meeting society’s expectations. Aim: a safe, eco-friendly, socially responsible network. 

Making sustainable mobility a reality

Sustainable development factors into all of our strategic decisions and inspires us to share best practices across all of our business areas—which is why SNCF Réseau has a dedicated division for environmental and sustainability issues.

Our four priorities

Meeting high safety standards

The safe movement of trains and the security of people are the top priorities for our sustainable development policy. We achieve these goals by running safe, secure operations and by responding to the impact of climate change on our infrastructures.
