KCS recognized for corporate responsibility
Kansas City Southern announced yesterday it has been included in Newsweek magazine's ranking of "America's Most Responsible Companies" and Investor's Business Daily magazine's "50 Best ESG Companies."
The lists rank companies based on their corporate responsibility actions in the United States.
"KCS has a variety of social responsibility initiatives underway in the U.S. and Mexico that illustrate our belief that the way we do business is as important as the business we do, and that living the KCS values of safety, customer focus, communication, teamwork, initiative and innovation, and diversity and
civility creates a foundation for our growth and success," said KCS President and Chief Executive Officer Pat Ottensmeyer in a press release.
Newsweek ranked KCS at No. 104 of 300 overall and No. 4 among travel, transport and logistics companies. The rank is voted on by more than 6,500 people and considers corporate responsibility measures for environmental, social and governance.
Investor's Business Daily ranked KCS at No. 34 among companies with ESG ratings from MSCI ESG Research as of Sept. 11, 2019, which aims to help investors keep their values in sync with their investments.
