The FS Italiane group believes that an organisation’s long-term success is built on a strategy that prioritises the protection of natural balances. The FS Italiane group’s greatest contribution to the creation of an environmentally sustainable development model is that it offers increasingly more efficient and sustainable transport services that maximise the benefits of collective mobility.
