Amtrak Quote 2
"Amtrak agreed to voluntarily reduce greenhouse gas emissions from diesel locomotives by 6 percent from 2003 to 2010 (1998-2001 baseline) as a charter member of the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX). We are meeting this reduction schedule and learned how to use some newer engine technologies and operating practices to make (and exceed) our reduction commitment. There are now ongoing initiatives at Amtrak to trial alternative fuels, use wind and solar energy for signal and yard operations and purchase new, even more efficient, locomotives."
-Roy Deitchman, Vice President of EHS of Amtrak
