Further to a decision made by the General Assembly, UIC has launched the Ecoscoring project (aimed at improving the rail sector’s access to sustainable finance). In this context our association has decided to offset the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of its head office and staff (seconded and permanent staff).
Therefore, UIC has formed a partnership with the web platform CimateSeed (https://www.climateseed.com/) to support projects with environmental (energy efficiency, reforestation, agricultural process optimisation, etc.) and social purposes (reduction of respiratory diseases, gender inequalities, reduction of poverty, etc.).
Senior management wanted to involve all UIC staff in choosing which project to support. Therefore all staff have been invited to vote for one of the projects.
The vote will be closed on 12 April. The results of the vote will be published in a further edition of UIC eNews.
