The Road to Radiodays Europe (continued)

Captura de pantalla 2020-02-19 15

Radiodays Europe care about their visitor’s carbon footprint, we accept as an international conference we have to look at all ways we can be more sustainable, so we have put together a lower emission route to Lisbon, Portugal from your closest city. You may take more time to get to Lisbon, but you will be reducing your carbon footprint by taking the train.

How does travelling by train compare?
Train virtually always comes out better than plane, often by a lot. A journey from London to Madrid (for example) would emit 43kg (95lb) of CO2 per passenger by train, but 118kg by plane (or 265kg if the non-CO2 emissions are included), according to EcoPassenger.

Thanks to Rome2Rio for making it so easy to find these routes. We have not added prices into these suggest routes as prices change regularly across networks and on ticketing websites. 

Bon voyage!
