Be a Sustainability champion! – Applications until September 12 2016

Introduced at the 10th UIC Sustainability Conference in London in 2008 and following the success of previous editions, the first day of the UIC Sustainability Conference in Vienna will allow UIC members to highlight recent achievements in the field of railway sustainability.

This session will take the form of a world tour of railways, with each speaker given 3 minutes and one slide to describe the impact on environmental, social and economic sustainability.

During the last edition in Venice in 2012, awards were given in four categories to the following participants: Sustainable Mobility award to TRENITALIA, Energy and CO2 award to Eress Partnership, Sustainable Land Use award to ÖBB Green Paper and the Jury’s Special Prize on Energy Efficiency to Indian Railways.

This is a unique opportunity to illustrate the commitment of your company to sustainability issues and to share best practice with a global audience to show the important efforts of the rail sector to enhance its sustainability performance.
To be a Sustainability Champion and reserve your time on stage please complete your application on the website before 12 September 2016.
