ILF Consulting Engineers collects Green Points by travelling by rail

To further raise people’s awareness of how they can help the environment by switching to travelling by rail, the Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) have recently initiated the environmental programme ÖSTERREICH BLÜHT AUF (AUSTRIA IS BLOSSOMING). In the framework of this initiative, for every kilometer travelled by rail the ÖBB offers “Green Points” that can be collected and used to promote specific environmental projects.

By travelling by rail when on business trips ILF has saved more than 15.25 tonnes in CO2 emissions in one year and was able to support the project “Paradies für Amphibien (Paradise for amphibians)” with the 97,734 Green Points that ILF employees collected from the ÖBB.

As the sustainable protection of the environment is of utmost importance for our company both with regard to the structures and facilities designed by ILF and with regard to our daily project work, we appreciate this initiative and see it as a motivation to further increase our efforts in this respect.
