On February 17th and 18th, 2021 there was the 2nd edition of EEC Trends OnLine. Representatives of DB Cargo Polska were involved in the debate on the Post-pandemic economy & Europe in Reconstruction. The main idea of their speeches: Railways are the preferred mean of transport for sustainable development,

“The strategy of sustainable development of transport shows the need to build a system that would reduce the negative impact on the environment. Rail remains the preferred means of transport; nevertheless, the strategy does not propose any tools enabling the implementation of this preference,” said Marek Staszek, during the debate.

“Customers expect transports based on electricity from renewable energy sources. To meet these expectations, we signed a letter of intent expressing our willingness to cooperate in the GreenRail Programme” adds.

Marek Staszek is an economist and transport engineer by education. Among others, he is former President of the Management Board of DB Schenker Rail Polska, Management Board Member for Production of DB Cargo AG Germany. In May 2020, he was again appointed President of the Management Board of DB Cargo Polska. Currently, he is responsible for the DB Cargo group's businesses in Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Pawel Pucek is a graduate of the Faculty of Rail Transport of the Silesian University of Technology. In 2007 he was established in PTK Holding S.A. as a member of the management board responsible for transport. In his career, he became Director of Product Management, Director of Transport, and Director of Sales at DB Schenker Rail Polska and DB Cargo Polska. In January 2015, he was appointed a Management Board Member for Sales.
