Community of European Railway and Infrastructure Companies (CER)



CER brings together more than 70 European railway undertakings, infrastructure companies and vehicle leasing companies, including long-established bodies, new entrants, and both private and public-sector organisations. In EU, EFTA and EU accession countries, CER members represent about 75% of the rail network length, more than 85% of the rail freight business and over 90% of rail passenger operations, with 1.2 million jobs directly created by CER members. 

CER promotes a strong rail industry that can form the basis of a long-term sustainable European transport system. 

Adaptation activities include:

  • CER has set up a working group on climate change adaptation to share experiences and collect data that can be used with political partners. 
  • CER is a member of the European Commission's Adaptation Steering Group.
  • CER is involved in a number of EU funded research projects assessing the vulnerability of transport infrastructure to extreme climatic events.
