Nature conservation

Management approach and targets

We consider protecting biodiversity to be an essential task and integrate it at every stage from planning and construction through to operating our facilities. In our activities, for example in the construction and expansion of the rail infrastructure, wherever an intervention cannot be avoided, ade­quate compensation areas are created to ensure we fulfill all of our legal obligations under nature protection law. We use wildlife detection dogsno. 162 to help generate the spe­cies mapping of a construction site and in order to detect sand li­­zards, grass snakes or other protected animal species. We also set ourselves ambitious targets on protecting biodi­versity in our operations: we are planning to operate our rail transport glyphosate-free from 2023 onwards. To achieve this, we are developing the existing vegetation control measures for tracks into a sustainable vegetation management.
