Kansas City Southern has submitted a commitment letter to the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) pledging to set a science-based greenhouse gas emissions reduction target.

The science-based target will align with what climate scientists say is needed to meet the Paris Agreement goal of limiting global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, KCS officials said in a press release.

By committing to the SBTi, KCS is building on steps already taken to lower its greenhouse gas emissions, including actions taken during its precision scheduled railroading implementation to improve fuel efficiency and investments in fuel-saving technologies, company officials said.

"Kansas City Southern has long recognized the important role that rial plays in lowering overall transportation emissions," said KCS President and Chief Executive Officer Patrick Ottensmeyer. "Our pledge to issue a science-based target reinforces our commitment to further improving fuel efficiency and lowering emissions in support of a more sustainable North American supply chain."
