The purpose of this paper is to analyze the state of current knowledge and tools needed to move the German company Deutsche Bahn AG towards climate neutrality. Both literary sources and statistical data were used in the preparation of the paper. The main questions addressed in the paper are: how the concept of climate neutrality applies to Deutsche Bahn AG, what experience the company has in planning carbon-neutral operation and what tools can be used. As greenhouse gas emissions rise, so does the need to find solutions for reducing carbon dioxide emissions. Deutsche Bahn AG is aiming for climate neutrality by 2050. To achieve this goal, it is primarily relying on the use of renewable energy to power overhead cables and train stations. In addition, alternative engine options are being developed to replace the existing fleet of diesel locomotives on non-electrified sections. Improving the energy efficiency of both rolling stock and railroad stations is also becoming increasingly important.
