Moving What Matters, Protecting our Environment

Even though we believe that rail remains the most environmentally friendly, efficient means of land transportation, we’re committed to continually improving our environmental impact and making the communities we serve cleaner and greener. In 2014, we were named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for the fourth consecutive year for our environmental initiatives including our commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 6-8 percent by 2020 and our Trees for Tracks program, where we working toward our goal of planting 42,000 trees (two for every mile of track) by the end of 2018.
