In Spain, the transport sector represents 27% of greenhouse gas emissions.

Rail represents just 0.01% of the country’s total emissions.

With the ambitious national objective of reducing transport emissions by 32% by 2030, rail has the potential to become a driver of Spain’s economy and key industry in the fight against climate change.

The survey shows that the rail supply industry, however, needs to convince talent in Spain to pursue the many opportunities its companies have to offer.
