Freight is a big CO2 emitter Carbon dioxide emissions from all domestic transport and road freight now account for 8%

carbon dioxide emissions.

92% of domestic transport emissions are from road modes

Energy efficiency is directly related to carbon dioxide emissions, rail is significantly more

energy efficient than other modes with the exception of shipping. a tonne of goods can

travel 246 miles by rail as opposed to 88 miles by road on a gallon of fuel

Source Network Rail Value of Freight July 2010

Rail freight emits 75% less greenhouse gas emissions per tonne of freight moved compared to the road freight transport sector. Investing in energy efficiency further enhances rail transport’s competitiveness as economies transition to a low carbon future.1
