CSX last week published its 2019 Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) report, which highlights the railroad's sustainability actions on safety, environment, people, communities and governance.
The report addresses CSX's "record-setting" safety performance, achieving 2020 emissions reduction targets ahead of schedule, and CSX becoming the first Class I to operate at a fuel efficiency rate of less than one gallon of fuel per 1,000 gross ton miles for a quarter.
"Since our last comprehensive ESG report was published, CSX has undergone a significant transformation. We revolutionized our operating model, wholly transforming the company's financial ESG profile. The 2019 report illustrates how the transformation has allowed us to achieve new levels of reliability, customer service, safety and environmental efficiency," said President and Chief Executive Officer James Foote in a press release.
In his opening message included in the report, Foote also provides an overview of CSX's response to the COVID-19 crisis. The message includes a link to the railroad's pandemic response plan, which can be read here.
