image CSX has become the first North American railroad to have its new greenhouse gas emissions intensity goals set and approved by the Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi), the Class I announced yesterday.The SBTi independently assesses corporate emissions reduction targets in line with what climate scientists say is necessary to meet the goal of limiting global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius.CSX will reduce greenhouse gas emissions intensity by 37.3 percent between 2014 and 2030. The company expects future transformational technology to facilitate this next level of reductions and is extensively investing in technologies and operational practices that drive maximum achievable efficiencies, CSX officials said in a press release.In 2018, CSX achieved its goal to reduce emissions intensity by 6 percent to 8 percent by 2020, achieving an 8.1 percent emissions intensity reduction and reaching the goal set in 2012 two years ahead of plan.Reducing emissions is important to CSX and its customers. The railroad is the only U.S. Class I to have crossed the threshold of operating below one gallon of fuel-per-thousand gross ton miles, CSX officials said.CSX is pursuing opportunities for additional improvement as part of its commitment to sustainable business practices, they added.
