CSX named to 'Best Citizens' list


CSX has been named one of Corporate Responsibility Magazine's "Best Corporate Citizens" for 2016, marking the Class I's fourth appearance on the list.

CSX placed No. 47 on this year's list, and was the only railroad included in the ranking, according to a company press release.

The 100 Best Corporate Citizens List measures all Russell 1000 companies based on 260 publicly available data points in seven categories: environment, climate, employee relations, human rights, governance, finance, and philanthropy and community support. The ranking is determined on a relative comparison.

CSX's performance in the ranking highlights the company's grant programs and in-kind donations, increased data transparency, continued shareholder returns, and progress on its 2020 sustainability goals, according to a CSX press release.

"As we continue to shape CSX to meet the demands of tomorrow, we remain dedicated to safe and responsible operations," said CSX Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael Ward. "Investing in our employees, communities, and the environment, and developing technologies for more efficient performance, are key aspects of creating a strong foundation for CSX's future."
