CSX named to sustainability index for ninth year
CSX was named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for North America for the ninth consecutive year, recognizing the company’s leadership in sustainable and responsible business practices, the Class I announced yesterday.
CSX was the only U.S.-based railroad included on the North American index in 2019, railroad officials said in a press release.
CSX was recognized for performance in corporate citizenship and philanthropy, environmental policy and management systems, and human capital development.
“CSX is achieving unprecedented goals — in safety, fuel efficiency, operating performance, and sustainability,” said CSX President and Chief Executive Officer James Foote. “CSX is also partnering with customers to find new ways to convert more freight from highway to rail, so together we can reduce our carbon footprint, minimize impacts on the environment and help create a more efficient supply chain.”
The DJSI North America index is a partnership between the Dow Jones Indices and RobecoSAM Sustainability Assessments, which tracks the leading sustainability-driven companies based on an analysis of financially material economic, environmental and governance criteria.
