The major challenges facing modern society can be mastered only if we all pull together. VTG takes its ecological, economic and social responsibility seriously.


Our society is confronted by huge challenges – first and foremost the need to combat climate change, but also the need to improve air quality, reduce noise pollution and develop forward-looking mobility concepts. VTG is rethinking rail freight with a raft of innovative, integrated services in the rail space. Our objective is to convince customers of the strength of the rail system and, in doing so, play an active part in driving the transport transition. Yet our commitment to mitigating climate change goes beyond the nature of our core business: We are also determined to be a completely carbon-neutral company by 2040. To achieve this goal, we have developed an integrated sustainability strategy.
