Green traveling

Almost all trains in Sweden are electric and SJ only buys its electricity from renewable sources like water and wind for its trains. This means that the production of electricity for the trains causes minimal emissions. When calculate per person, the amount of carbon dioxide emissions on a trip from Stockholm to Gothenburg would be the equivalent of driving 3 millimeters on gasoline. All trips with SJ’s electric trains meet the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation’s requirements for Good Environmental Choice, the world’s toughest eco-label.

Every day, around 110,000 people travel to about 350 destinations in Sweden on SJ’s trains. In 2007, SJ had earning of 8,3 billion Swedish crowns. SJ’s 400 employees work hard to make train travel simple, comfortable and safe. Sj’s electric trains are labeled as Good Environmental Choice fulfilling the world’s toughest environmental requirements.

Green landings

The trips to and from Umeå are of course included in the concept of Green Meetings. Umeå airport works hard to implement the so-called green landings.

– A green landing means that you make a more even descent from the maximum height. The descent feels more like gliding and happens while to engines at very low revolutions. This reduces both fuel consumption and noise, says airport manager Karin Larsson-Tängden. Many landings are carried out this way in Umeå today.

Umeå Airport became environmentally certified in 1999 and was the first airport to do so in Scandinavia.

– We work hard to create the best conditions for green landings in Umeå and will gladly do what we can to live up to the environmental concerns that characterize Green meetings.
