The Climate Train to COP26

We’d like to invite you and your clients to take the exclusive Climate Train from Amsterdam to Glasgow for the UN conference on climate change (COP26). The train will run on Saturday 30 October 2021, providing a greener alternative to flying.

Travel emissions play a significant role in heating up our planet. However, there are plenty of low-carbon, climate-friendly alternatives to flying.
For over 25 years, Eurostar has been a champion of sustainable travel. A person’s carbon footprint from one flight between our destinations can be the same as making 13 Eurostar journeys*. That’s the equivalent of travelling with us every day for nearly two weeks.

It’s therefore our privilege to take part in this initiative to encourage everyone to travel to COP26 sustainably. We hope you’ll join us.

The Climate Train includes a Eurostar journey from Amsterdam Centraal (08:47 CET) to London St Pancras International (11:57 GMT), calling at Rotterdam Centraal (09:28 CET) and Brussels Midi (10:48 CET).

Passengers will then make the short transfer to London Euston, where they’ll take an Avanti West Coast service to Glasgow (early evening).

A series of debates and seminars will be held during the journey to draw attention to the vital role that rail has to play in tackling climate change.

There will be an influential mix of passengers on board, including railway industry leaders, policymakers, NGOs and members of the Youth for Sustainable Travel movement.

Tickets for the Climate Train cost just €70 in Standard class and €120 in Business Premier class. You and your clients can also get discounted return tickets from London to Brussels, Rotterdam or Amsterdam.

Customers can register their interest here. They’ll then be sent an email with a link to book their ticket.
