Rome, 16 February 2016
It is important to prefer a collective means of transport when travelling, as it is an environmentally-friendly means of transport.
It is important to cook with a low environmental impact, to turn off electrical appliances and not leave them on stand-by, but especially turn off lights. Besides, it is important to use the car as little as possible sharing it with who follows the same routes, and to use bikes for moving around the city.
These are a few of the suggestions provided in the “10 set of rules (+one).” Using collective means of transport has been added to the ten best practices of the campaign "M’illumino di meno," an initiative promoted by Radio 2 through its radio programme Caterpillar and supported by Gruppo Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane on the occasion of the day devoted to energy saving and sustainable mobility.
The set of rules of "M'illumino di meno" is available on caterpillar.blog.rai.it
Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane is daily committed in the implementation of sustainable mobility projects involving travellers and personnel.
All of FS’s industrial actions are focused on optimizing energy efficiency and collective transport competitiveness, both rail and tyre.
The main protagonist is the train, as it is the means that groups various highly sustainable characteristics: energy efficiency, the use of renewable energies and materials, low CO2 emissions.
On 19 February, the day devoted to "M’illumino di meno," concomitantly with the radio programme Caterpillar, Gruppo FS Italiane will carry out a symbolical action by turning off its headquarters’ sign in Rome from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Gruppo Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane supports the campaign aimed at increasing energy saving and sustainable mobility awareness by calling to mind simple daily actions that can make the difference, both at home and at the office:
10+1. prefer collective means of transport, a choice for the environment.
