Railway electrification, green certification for structures or stations, improving the energy quality of trains and locomotives as well as fixed installations, installing bio-toilets in train coaches and also switching to renewable energy sources are some of the main steps taken by the national carrier to achieve net zero carbon emissions.

The national transporter completed electrification of more than 40,000 Rkm (63 percent of Broad Gauge routes) during 2014-2020, where electrification work was conducted on 18,605 km until July 2020. Previously, Indian Railways had completed just 3,835 km of electrification work during the 2009-14 period. A fixed electrification target of 7000 Rkm for the year 2020-21 was set by the Railway Ministry. The electrification of all rail routes on the Broad Gauge network is scheduled for December 2023.

The national transport company has also taken a number of measures to encourage renewable energy. The national transporter works to harness the capacity of 500 Mega Watts (MW) of energy by roof top solar panels (Developer model). Besides this, Indian Railways is also trying to produce electricity for running trains from land-based solar installations. In addition to these initiatives, some other moves towards zero carbon emissions have been taken by Indian Railways.
