Indian Railways: Indian Railways (IR) is set to become the largest green railway in the world in mission mode. It is set to become the “Net Zero Carbon Emitter” before 2030. Guides the railways with an eco-friendly, efficient, cost-effective comprehensive vision. Indian Railways will be an efficient and timely transportation system to cater to the growing needs of New India. Indian Railways is working with special plans to help the environment with steps like massive electrification, water, paper conservation, saving animals from injury on railway tracks. Our railway system is accelerating the economic benefits of electric traction and is moving towards achieving 100% electrification of busy routes. Also, the Railways plans to electrify the Balance Broad Gauge (BG) lines by December 2023. Head-on-generation systems, bio-toilets and LED lights recreate the train into travel mode. The railways are looking to make these more convenient for passengers.
Indian Railways is developing dedicated freight corridors as a low carbon green transport network with a long term low carbon roadmap. This allows for more energy efficiency, carbon-friendly technologies, and the adoption of practices. IR is implementing two dedicated freight corridor projects. The Eastern Corridor (EDFC) stretches from Ludhiana to Dankuni (1,875 km), while the Western Corridor (WDFC) stretches from Dadri to the Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (1,506 km). The Sonnagar-Dunku (538 km) portion of the EDFC is planned to be implemented in Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode.
Eco-friendly compared to road transport. The IR network has played a major role in the transportation of goods such as food grains and oxygen during the epidemic. From April 2021 to May 2021, Indian Railways moved 73 lakh tonnes of food grains. 241 drove loaded Oxygen Express trains. 922 moved loaded tankers. It has transported 15,046 tonnes of oxygen to various parts of the country.
Indian Railways is making efforts to reach an estimate of the parameters that green certification mainly has a direct impact on the environment. These environmental constraints include energy conservation measures, renewable energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions reduction, water conservation, waste management, material conservation, and recycling. 19 railway stations have achieved green certification, including 3 platinum, 6 gold and 6 silver ratings. Another 27 railway buildings, offices, campuses and other institutions also received green certification, including 15 platinum, 9 gold and 2 silver ratings.
