How high is your Railsponsibility?
Six rail companies decided to collaborate in order to promote a more sustainable procurement in the global railway supply chain. The initiative was called ‘Railsponsible’ and will aim to ensure that all railway suppliers have good social, ethical, environmental and business practices in place. The companies taking part in the scheme are: Bombardier Transportation, Deutsche Bahn, Alstom Transport, Nederlandse Spoorwegen, Knorr-Bremse, and SNCF. ‘Railsponsible’ will encourage the suppliers to hold quarterly membership meetings to share best practices, take part in assessment campaigns and analyze data in order to identify supply chain priorities. This will help make the procurement processes in rail companies more transparent and sustainable, while promoting collaboration at the same time.
