A network of trains fuelled by renewable energy are running in Paris this week.

Official delegates and journalists from Asia and Europe are taking these trains as the means to travel ‘carbon free’ to COP21.

The International Union of Railways and renewable energy supplier ECOHZ have worked together on developing the project ahead of the climate conference in the French capital which runs all week.

ECOHZ’s CEO, Tom Lindberg said: “We know that many people traveling to Paris really care about their carbon footprint. Choosing to travel by train is clearly more environmentally friendly than by air or private cars.

“Unfortunately a significant share of the electricity on the European grid comes from fossil fuels. So travelling by electric trains or electric cars is not clean unless you have a guarantee of origin.”
