CSX named to Dow Jones Sustainability Index


CSX announced yesterday announced it has earned a place on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) North America for the 10th consecutive year with across-the-board improvement in environmental, social, governance and economic scores.

CSX is the only U.S. railroad to make the DJSI, and is ranked among the top 15 transportation and transportation infrastructure companies worldwide, CSX officials said in a press release.

"Being ranked among the most sustainably run transportation in the world is an affirmation of the actions we're taking to reduce fuel consumption and lower emissions through technology and increasingly efficient operations," said CSX President and Chief Executive Jim Foote.

The DJSI North America index is a partnership between the Dow Jones Indices and RobescoSAM Sustainability Assessments, which tracks leading sustainability-driven companies based on an analysis of financially material economic, environmental and governance criteria.

"Our commitment to sustainability is good for us, for our customers and for our society," Foote said. "It supports our strategy of working with customers to convert more freight from highway to rail, which reduces highway congestion and wasteful emissions."
