The CSR report reviews CSX's efforts to manage its environmental footprint and highlights key environmental achievements in 2012, such as progress toward a goal to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions intensity between 6 percent and 8 percent from 2011 levels by 2020; continued investment in technology to improve fuel efficiency and reduce locomotive emissions; and ongoing training of 30,000 employees in environmental stewardship.

The report also cites CSX's 2012 accomplishments aimed at supporting local communities, and strengthening and engaging its workforce.

"Our goal is to use this report to engage further in important conversations with our stakeholders about how CSX can continue to be a leader in sustainability in 2013 and beyond," said CSX Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Michael Ward in a press release. "Operating a sustainable, transparent company is an important element of [our] commitment, and our CSR report demonstrates how we put these values into practice."

CSX also announced it was named one of the "100 Best Places to Work in IT" by IDG's Computerworld. The Class I is ranked No. 19, the highest among transportation companies.

The ranking of the top work environments for information technology professionals is based on a company's performance in such categories as benefits, diversity, career development, training and retention.
