Our customers appreciate not only the wide range of services we offer; they also appreciate the railway’s low environmental impact. It is one of the reasons why so many people choose SBB. And it means we have a continuing obligation. SBB has set itself the task of further extending the environmental advantage of the railway.
SBB and the environment
The number of passengers carried rose by 6 % – on a daily average, 951,000 people travelled by SBB.
Although it has not yet broken even, SBB Cargo increased its carryings by 12.3 % – every day, it transported some 200,000 tonnes of freight.
Real Estate made substantial contributions to Infrastructure (CHF 150 million) and to the pension fund (CHF 79.2 million).
Owing to high investment requirements and a contribution to the restructuring of the SBB pension fund the free cash flow came to CHF –1,371 million.
Rail customers’ satisfaction with safety and punctuality continued to rise.
