Rails over Roads: JKU employees who took business trips by train instead of by car saved Mother Earth 26.4 tons of CO2 last year.
Employees at the JKU are encouraged to, if possible, use the train to take business trips. In addition more comfort, the train is a more pleasant travel experience. JKU employees helped to save over 26 tons of CO2 last year; a small contribution to help save the environment which is more important than ever before as the average global temperatures are 1°C above pre-industrial levels. According to the Climate Protection report, 2014, 2015 and 2016 were the warmest years on record.
