The protection of biodiversity and natural habitats is another important task that we fulfill, in particularly in the operation and further development of our infrastructure. Our activities, especially those in the new construction and expansion of track infrastructure, enable us to meet all regulatory requirements relating to nature conservation, and a number of voluntary measures mean that we are even taking them one step further. DB Group is developing existing track-side vegetation control into a sustainable vegetation management system. A core part of this development is the early phasing out of the use of glyphosate. Together with partners from science and industry, we are working on developing alternative methods. We are working toward our objective of operating rail transport with no glyphosate by 2023.
