CSX named to CDP's 'A' list for environmental actions


CSX announced yesterday that for the ninth consecutive year it has been named to global environmental nonprofit CDP’s "A List,” which recognizes companies for leadership in taking actions to address climate change.

CDP evaluates companies based on their actions to cut emissions, mitigate climate risks and develop a low-carbon economy.

CSX was the top U.S.-based Class I to achieve the recognition, CSX officials said in a press release. CSX and CN are the only two North American railroads to receive the ranking.

The CDP assessment examines issues such as leadership on corporate environmental ambition, action and transparency as well as management of environmental risks and demonstration of best practices. Officials said the recognition is considered the “gold standard of corporate environmental transparency.”

“Railroads are three-to-four times more fuel efficient that trucks, on average, and CSX is continually developing innovative solutions for further reducing emissions by converting freight from highway to rail,” said Executive Vice President and Chief Legal Officer Nathan Goldman.
