We have been hearing a lot about off-setting carbon emissions from plane travel, and of course we know that trains are less poluting than planes. But now Eurostar plans greener trains (from article in the BBC). They claim they will operate carbon neutral trains as of November. And their objective is to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 25% per passenger by 2012. They will do this by reducing power consumption on their rolling stock, making better use of train capacity and source more electricity from lower-emission generators. More eco-friendly steps also include cutting consumption of raw materials, sourcing responsibly, and recycling more waste. Way to go!
