Back in June 2013, Tehran Urban & Suburban Railway Operations Co. was the first company in the Middle East to obtain the GC-Mark “Green Company”. Since then, the company has used the GC-Mark certificate and label to demonstrate its commitment to the environment. Mr. Mohamadian, the representative manager at Tehran Urban & Suburban Railway Operations, was glad to share his experiences with GC-Mark certification.
“Metro transportation saves 3500 billion Rials in fuel consumption and 6980 thousand tons of CO2 emissions. As each train capacity equals 35 buses and 375 taxis; the Tehran metro passenger transported record will be 2250000 trips per day. This shows how much can be achieved by reducing energy consumption. In addition, Tehran Urban & Suburban Railway Operations also strives to reduce noise and visual pollution by optimizing velocity, time management and waste management. The GC-Mark is testimony to our efforts to provide healthy, safe and convenient transportation in Tehran metropolitan city.”
Following a successful re-inspection on site in December 2014, the Tehran Urban & Suburban Railway Operations currently holds a GC-Mark “Green Company” certificate valid for another year.
The GC-Mark “Green Company” is based upon the international standard for environmental management ISO 14001. For more information about the GC-Mark “Green Company”, please click here.
