Alstom voted “green champion”

Listen to this article:

Alstom has been voted a Green Champion by Agoria, the Belgian federation of technology companies.

At its annual event, Agoria decided to showcase several Belgian Green Champions so that they could share their experiences with other companies operating in the sector. The idea is for these pioneers of the green transition to inspire others. Altogether, nine Green Champions were carefully selected by a panel made up of experts from Agoria and Sirris.

What sets Alstom says sets it apart is its innovative rail transport solutions developed by its teams in Charleroi, Bruges, Brussels and Mechelen. Alstom employs more than 2,000 people in Belgium, including 600 engineers. They are engaged in developing carbon-free mobility – when a traveller chooses the train, they emit 30 times less greenhouse gases than in a car and 20 times less than in a plane.

“I am delighted that we have been voted Green Champions by the experts at Agoria and Sirris. One of Alstom’s aims is to bolster innovation in the area of sustainable and smart mobility”, said Bernard Belvaux, Managing Director for the Benelux countries.

“We can be considered an example for others to follow, insofar as the progress made by our research and development teams in Belgium makes a considerable contribution to the success of numerous other green mobility projects throughout the world. To run these products, we continue to recruit talented young people and experienced professionals. At Alstom, these new recruits will have a real opportunity to make a major difference, working at the cutting-edge of innovation.”
