NS issues first-ever 'sustainability' report


Norfolk Southern Corp. is "going green" and the Class I has issued its first-ever report that details how.

NS has posted the report on its environmental Web site at

"Our goal is to achieve industry leadership in fuel conservation, emissions reduction, efficient energy use, recycling, use of renewable materials and environmental partnerships," said NS Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Wick Moorman in a prepared statement. "We believe it is our responsibility to conduct our business in accordance with sustainability practices that will help to provide ongoing opportunities for our people, our communities, our customers and our investors."
