DB Cargo sites powered by 100% renewable electricity

DB Cargo UK has announced that all its rail sites and offices will be powered by 100 per cent renewable electricity thanks to a three-year agreement with SSE Business Energy.

Roger Neary, Head of Sales at DB Cargo UK, said: “Our customers have long understood the environmental benefits of moving their goods via rail rather than road and are increasingly more environmentally aware with ‘green issues’ becoming prominent on their daily agendas. This initiative not only demonstrates DB Cargo’s understanding of our customers’ requirements but also supports DB Cargo’s vision for global sustainability.”

SSE Business Energy

SSE Business Energy will supply all sites belonging to DB Cargo UK. The rail freight company worked with Schneider Electric along with DB Schenker UK and Arriva UK Group to identify and evaluate supplier options and arrange the deal and ultimately selected SSE Business Energy based on price and additional services.
