Eco Responsible Business Travel

Next week the Sun Eco Tour starts in Detmold, home of Weidmüller, who won the Energy Efficiency Award in 2007 for saving 775.000kWh electrical power in their production plant every year. Detmold - that's more than 500km north of Munich, where I'm located. So what is the most eco-efficient way to travel to Detmold?

The most efficient way, of course, is riding a bike like the Sun Eco Rider. But since Martin is riding the Eco Rider, I have to find an alternative.

Deutsche Bahn (German Railways) offers a neat service that calculates the energy consumption and CO2 emission for every possible route. They compare going by rail (using their energy mix - Diesel and electricity created in coal, nuclear or hydro power plants), by car and by plane.

So this is my result for the Detmold trip:
Detmold

24kg CO2 for the train trip, compared to 106kg for the car and 96kg for the plane. OK, that's Factor 4 - decision done - 5hrs, 20min on the train - finally time to read a good book again!
