Sustainability
V/Line understands that our role as a public transport operator contributes to environmental sustainability.  We encourage thousands of Victorians to change modes from private vehicles to public transport for all their transport needs.
 
However with about 3770 kilometres of railway track under our control, including stations, rail yards and a fleet of more than 100 individual train sets we have many environmental challenges.

Some of our biggest challenges relate to the management, and protection of significant vegetation beside our tracks and our use of diesel fuel to power our trains.

In 2009-10, new reporting criteria required V/Line to submit additional information on office-based environmental data. Detailed information on aspects of energy use, waste production and paper use means keeping environmental issues front of mind for the business and sets out challenges for ongoing improvement in the coming years.

Energy efficiency
The Energy Efficiency Opportunities program encourages large energy-using businesses to improve their energy efficiency. It does this by requiring businesses to identify, evaluate and report publicly on cost effective energy savings opportunities.

V/Line has registered for the Energy Efficiencies Opportunity program and undertaken an audit of our current energy usage, and more importantly, identified projects to drive energy savings.
