We are pleased to announce that H&Z Management Consulting and our sustainability platform and community SUSTAINX are working with Railsponsible to make sustainability ambitions a reality in the rail industry.
What is Railsponsible?
Railsponsible is an industry initiative focused on sustainable procurement with the goal of continuously improving sustainability practices throughout the rail industry supply chain. Members believe that sustainability is a key value driver for business and society, and strive for a global rail industry in which all operators and suppliers adopt good ethical, social and environmental business practices. The initiative is open to all rail operators and companies across the rail industry value chain, as well as key industry associations that share the vision, mission and commitments of the initiative.
Who is part of the initiative?
In March 2015, procurement leaders from six leading rail industry companies came together to form Railsponsible. Today, the initiative consists of 17 members, representing a significant portion of the rail industry's global spend and with a large presence in Europe. An image containing text, device, display.

What is the role of H&Z?
Since April, we have taken over the management office of the initiative to coordinate the activities of the whole initiative.
Together with SUSTAINX, we will help define common goals, initiate various working groups and assist in identifying appropriate green levers. Overall, the goal is to jointly develop sustainability standards in purchasing that can be applied across the industry! We believe that collaboration is the right way to drive sustainability and hope to take a big step towards truly sustainable rail with this partnership.
