- By 2030 the European railways will reduce their specific average CO2e emissions from train operation by 50% compared to base year 2005 measured per passenger-km (passenger service) and gross tonne-km (freight service). 

- By 2030, the European railways will reduce their total CO2e emissions from train operation by 30% in absolute terms compared to base year 2005.
