Our goal is to take the safest, most efficient and least resource-intensive approach to how we deliver our services.
Approximately 92% of Aurizon’s total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions relate to the operation of our diesel and electric fleet of 500 active locomotives.
In FY2016 we established a new target of 15% reduction in the GHG emissions intensity of our locomotive fleet by 2020 (using FY2015 as baseline). Achieving this target will result in a 30% emissions intensity reduction since 2010.
We seek to improve efficiency of our fleet to minimise diesel emissions. Locomotives contribute less than 1% of particulate matter (PM) in the New South Wales (NSW) Greater Metropolitan Region.
