The concept of sustainability is a strategic point for the Cluster to focus its investments and initiatives on. Developing low-impact environmental transport and increasing freight traffic from road to rail are priorities for the members of ER.I.C.
In fact, freight transport plays a fundamental role in achieving the environmental sustainability goals required in domestic and European policy documents, and the rail transport sector can provide an immediately available alternative to the need to make business transport more sustainable.
Training courses also aim to develop skills related to intermodal transport management and logistics services, orienting them towards a new mobility that combines high efficiency and sustainability objectives.
ER.I.C.’s activities contribute to reducing CO2 emissions and road congestion. The green theme is evident among its members who have launched energy-saving and renewable energy initiatives to reduce air pollution and noise, reduce energy consumption from fossil fuels, and protect public and private spaces while promoting public health.
