CSX named to magazine's 'best citizens' list

CSX Corp. was named to Corporate Responsibility Magazine's list of Best Corporate Citizens for 2017, the Class I announced yesterday.

The company ranked 55th in its fifth appearance on the list, and was the only railroad in the top 100, according to a CSX press release.

"CSX is committed to making a positive impact through our efficient, sustainable and environmentally friendly transportation of essential goods and products," said E. Hunter Harrison, president and chief executive officer. "Being a good corporate citizen is about making good decisions for our shareholders, our customers, our employees, and the communities where we operate, and we are proud of this recognition."

The 18th annual list examined companies within the Russell 1000 Index. Relative rankings were based on 260 data points of disclosure and performance measurements across seven categories: environment, climate change, employee relations, human rights, governance, finance, and philanthropy and community support.
