We strive every day to improve our environmental performance. We intend to satisfy the transport requirements of people and goods, by proposing a transport system based on the railway and integrated by the other players in the field of collective and sustainable mobility.

By taking advantage of transport by rail, the backbone of sustainable mobility, we intend to create an integrated and intermodal system that, as well as responding to customer requirements, has the smallest possible impact on the environment. Fs Italiane aims to create synergies between players, technologies and infrastructures in order to facilitate the shift towards more efficient and less polluting methods of transport for passengers and goods.

«As a large industrial group in the transport sector, FS Italiane has the responsibility and awareness of how its choices can affect people’s quality of life and natural balance».
