As part of its commitment not only to mitigate the impact of its activities on climate change but also to improve the quality of the ambient air, the LTG Group has set a target to ensure that the LTG Group’s emissions of pollutants to the ambient air from its haulage vehicles in 2030 will be 40% lower than in 2005.

The primary pollutants emitted from haulage vehicles are particulates and nitrogen oxides. These pollutants can be particularly harmful to human health and the environment, potentially forming toxic smog under unfavourable dispersion conditions.

Pollutant emissions are directly linked to the use of fossil fuels in rail transport, with 85% of these emissions originating from freight transport. The renewal of the haulage vehicle fleet through the acquisition of electric models, the implementation of electrification projects, and the increased utilisation of renewable energy sources will significantly reduce air pollutant emissions.

The LTG Group continuously monitors emissions into the ambient air from 185 stationary pollution sources (distribution centres, warehouses, railway stations, and other facilities).
