CSX yesterday released its 2021 environmental, social and governance (ESG) report on the company’s economic, workforce, environmental, social and governance performance.

The report details progress made against CSX's 2030 environmental goals, including achieving a 15.6% reduction in Scope 1 and 2 emissions intensity since 2014 and piloting alternative fuels and engine enhancements to reduce fuel burn and overall emissions from locomotives.

CSX is assessing goals and targets to bolster progress across its ESG priorities, which are discussed in the report. The report also covers the company's efforts to build a workforce reflective of the communities the railroad serves, CSX officials said in a press release.

"By continuing to invest in our people and communities, innovating to introduce new environmental solutions and expanding our network capacity and service offerings, we have positioned CSX to accelerate highway-to-rail freight conversion while adding to a solid operating foundation that will support CSX’s future growth and our ability to create lasting value for our stakeholders," said CSX President and James Foote.

The report is prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative Standards, the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board, the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures and other sustainability reporting frameworks.
