Touax supports its customers by providing sustainable means of transport: 

  • freight railcars
  • river barges 
  • intermodal containers 

Located at the heart of goods flows and world trade, Touax offers tailor-made solutions and is committed to its customers to promote a low-carbon economy.

"Our CSR approach, which encompasses environmental, social, ethical and governance issues, illustrates our initiatives to adopt sustainable practices in all our operations", say Fabrice and Raphaël Walewski - Managing Partners.

Touax has set up a CSR Committee within its Supervisory Board to implement a strong CSR strategy, an integral part of our business, which consists of:

  • Contributing to concrete actions for a more sustainable world
  • Creating competitive advantages and increasing our ability to develop and retain our customers
  • Increasing the motivation and commitment of the Group's employees
  • Increasing our access to capital (bank financing, equity and management investors)
  • Improving the Group's reputation and our relations with all stakeholders (public authorities, suppliers, customers, etc.) 

In 2023, the Group signed up to the United Nations Global Compact as a sign of its commitment to society, and as such supports the Sustainable Development Goals.


Touax's CSR performance is assessed by independent third parties, enabling us to be part of a continuous improvement process.  
For its second assessment, Touax was awarded the EcoVadis Gold Medal in October 2023, with a score of 72/100, an increase of 9 points compared to 2022, a token of recognition and a concrete expression of our commitment.
