Noise reduction

Targets and management approach

Together with the Federal Government, we have set ourselves the goal to halve the nuisance to local residents caused by rail transport noise on DB Group lines by 2020. We, as the operator of the rail network, pursue this objective as part of the Federal Government’s voluntary noise remediation program and by refitting all active freight cars with WHISPER BRAKES NO. 05. With our two-­­pillar strategy for more noise reduction, we are creating greater acceptance among local people towards the shift in the mode of transport to climate-­friendly railways.
