JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – April 26, 2012 – CSX Corporation (NYSE: CSX) employee Keith Ebbeskotte was named an honoree for the John H. Chafee Environmental Award. Presented by the Association of American Railroads, this award recognizes members of the railroad industry who have demonstrated outstanding environmental awareness and responsibility. At a ceremony last night in Washington, D.C., Ebbeskotte was one of just six honorees selected from the more than150,000 employees in the railroad industry.
“Keith’s dedication to improving CSX’s environmental footprint is a credit to our entire industry,” said Edward J. Hamberger, president and CEO of the AAR. “His leadership of a stellar team and devotion to programs that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, energy use and waste improve the quality of life for our employees and the communities we serve.”
As plant manager of work equipment at CSX’s Bryan Park Work Equipment Shop in Richmond, Va., Ebbeskotte leads a team that has compiled an outstanding record of compliance with all environmental regulations covering hazardous and non-hazardous waste handling, recycling and wastewater treatment. The Bryan Park Shop is the largest of its type in North America and was the first facility to receive CSX’s Platinum Award for Environmental Compliance in 2011 under Ebbeskotte’s direction.
“Keith and his team exemplify all the core values of CSX,” said Ellen Fitzsimmons, senior vice president of law and public affairs, general counsel and corporate secretary. “Their tireless work has improved the environment near their home towns and has contributed to CSX’s stewardship of the environment across the company’s network.”
In addition to his leadership, Ebbeskotte is an innovator who initiated a wide variety of improvements that raised productivity and provided a more environmentally-friendly workplace. Among his many accomplishments, he assisted in reducing CSX’s carbon footprint and air emissions by helping to install low emission engines in all new and rebuilt equipment. This type of equipment now represents 25 percent of the CSX fleet.
The annual Chafee Award is named for the late Rhode Island senator who devoted his career to protecting the environment.
