We could go on for ever about our environmental work

SL

Freight transportation and private car journeys account for one-third of Sweden’s greenhouse gas emissions. Which means public transport has an important part to play in reducing the rate of global warming. Sweden has decided to show the way when it comes to the shift to green, and the City of Stockholm has pledged to be a fossil fuel-free city by 2040. SL is working to establish the world’s most sustainable public transport system. The aim of this campaign is to tell passengers about all the steps – whether little or large – that SL is taking towards that goal.

All* of our 2,100 buses run on renewable fuel.

*OK, all apart from two minibuses. The 889 on Ornö and the 689 on Tynningö (you know, the one that starts at Höganäs brygga). And we’ll be replacing them soon too.

We’ve built emergency exits into the Roslagsbanan line’s cable pits so that lost frogs* can find their way out again.

*And we’ve built tunnels for elks, otters, sea trout and the frogs’ other furry or finned friends, so that they can walk – or swim - safely under the tracks too.


We’re doing a lot* for the environment.

*Actually, we’re doing so much that there isn’t really room to tell you all about it in this ad. But we have at least tried to tell you more about it at sl.se/miljo where you can, for example, read about how we use renewable fuels, recycle energy through our hybrid buses, reduced our CO2 emissions by 80% in nine years, have trains that are almost completely recyclable, demand that the materials used are non-toxic and don’t trigger allergies, make life easier for the wildlife that lives around the Roslagsbanan line’s tracks, impose environmental demands on our suppliers, installing solar panels on our garages, making the Waxholm boats more energy efficient, run all of our trains and metro lines on green electricity, working towards some of the toughest climate goals in the EU, and working with researchers and trade and industry to promote sustainable development. Etc…

This is a hybrid bus that recycles* energy when it brakes.

*Part of our journey towards our destination as the world’s most sustainable public transport system. 

When we buy new trains, at least 98%* of the component materials must be recyclable.

*Those of you who like things nice and neat are probably wondering why it isn’t 100%. Answer: Hi there! We like things nice and neat too, but the problem is that some materials simply cannot be recycled. So they’re incinerated and converted into electricity or district heating instead. (And yes, because, like you, we like things nice and neat, we’re careful to make sure we use non-toxic and non-allergenic materials.)
