Budapest, 25th April 2016. – The plane trees planted with the support of all the Hungarian companies of Rail Cargo Group as a part of the tree-planting campaign of Ferencvárosi Torna Club (FTC) are thriving nicely. All companies of the Group joined the initiative of FTC and each of them contributed with a tree to the rehabilitation of the tree population being badly damaged by the severe storms in the Népliget Park. The development of the six trees, planted in the most convenient moment of their biological life cycle was inspected by Dr. Imre Kovács, chairman of the board of directors of Rail Cargo Hungaria Zrt., accompanied by Mr. Gábor Kubatov, president of FTC during a walk on behalf of the Earth Day on 24 April 2016.
The company group was represented by the executives of Rail Cargo Logistics – Hungaria Kft., Rail Cargo Operator – Hungaria Kft., Rail Cargo Terminal – BILK Zrt. and Rail Cargo Carrier Kft., who joined the walk as well.
According to Dr. Imre Kovács it was clear, that Rail Cargo Hungaria Zrt. would join the tree-planting campaign by FTC. Environmental awareness is a basic operational criterion for the Hungarian rail freight transport's market-leading company. The forwarding of goods by the company decreases harmful emission, which is several hundred-thousand tons less than the transport of the same freight volume would be on the road. The railway company does its best to use diesel traction only when it is necessary, it operates mainly electric locomotives.
All sub-companies of Rail Cargo Group lay emphasis on the reasonable usage of energy in their operations.
Dr. Imre Kovács also pointed out that as the eponym sponsor of FTC-Rail Cargo Hungaria women's handball team it was his heartfelt wish to be among the first to join the club's initiative.
The support of Rail Cargo Group is shown on signs at the stem of the plane trees growing in the club's park.
