    Goals / Remit

    Der DB-Konzern ist ein führender Anbieter im Bereich Mobilität und Logistik. Im Wesentlichen besteht der DB-Konzern aus dem Systemverbund Bahn sowie den zwei internationalen Großbeteiligungen DB Schenker und DB Arriva. Der Systemverbund Bahn umfasst unsere Personenverkehrsaktivitäten in Deutschland, unsere Schienengüterverkehrsaktivitäten, die operativen Serviceeinheiten sowie die Eisenbahninfrastrukturunternehmen. Der DB-Konzern, mit Sitz der Konzernleitung in Berlin, beschäftigt rund 340.000 Mitarbeitende. Der Fokus unserer Geschäftstätigkeit liegt auf dem Schienenverkehr in Deutschland. Unser elementares Anliegen ist dabei die Verlagerung von Verkehr auf die klimafreundliche Schiene. Hierfür setzen wir auf einen integrierten Betrieb von Verkehr und Eisenbahninfrastruktur, die ökonomisch und ökologisch intelligente Verknüpfung aller Verkehrsträger sowie die Zusammenarbeit in deutschen und europäischen Netzwerken.
