Moving on Climate

Amtrak is making significant progress in reducing fuel use through anti-idling practices for locomotives, installation of automatic start/stop technology that also limits idling of locomotives, aerodynamic improvements of rolling stock that reduce “drag,” improved engineer training for more fuel-efficient locomotive operations, and emerging green technology. For example, Amtrak has equipped 80 percent of the Northeast Corridor locomotive fleet with regenerative brakes, which can return up to 8 percent of the power they use back to the electrical grid. A regenerative brake is a device used for energy recovery during a locomotive’s deceleration process and converts some of the kinetic energy back into useable energy instead of dissipating it as heat.

“At REI, we’re looking for business-based solutions where our financial performance and social/environmental benefits are mutually reinforcing. We find that when we look at environmental metrics, we identify new opportunities and risks. In many ways we’re just getting started, but we’ve already seen real business benefits. Pursuing our aspiration of being climate neutral is helping us deliver on the expectation of both financial and environmental performance for our co-op members.”

-Kevin Hagen, Director of Corporate Social Responsibility, REI
