For the use of primary energy resources, train traffic stands for 56.7% and the infrastructure stands for 43.3%.
For the emissions of greenhouse gases, train traffic stands for 6.7% and the infrastructure stands for 93.3%.
For the emissions of acidifying pollutants, train traffic stands for 9.8% and the infrastructure stands for 90.2%.

The main part of the contributions to all environmental impact categories comes from raw material acquisition and production of materials used for the construction of the infrastructure, like steel and concrete who represent some 85% of the total material related CO2 emissions.
