Corporate Social Responsibility Report


Sustainability Statement

CSX aspires to be a leader in corporate sustainability. We are committed to the journey — as a business partner, an employer, a community member, an environmental steward and a value creator for shareholders. By thinking and acting sustainably, we will deliver excellent customer service and strong financial results and position the company for a strong future.

At CSX, sustainability is the way we manage and operate our business to best serve our customers, care for the environment, secure profits and drive long-term prosperity.

Sustainability is a business method that ensures safety, efficiency and responsibility in a manner that protects CSX employees, communities, shareholders and the environment, now and in the future.

Our daily operations align business performance with a commitment to environmental, social and community stewardship encompassing three elements:

Reduce the environmental footprint of our operations.

  • Transport goods in a manner that minimizes community and environmental impacts.
  • Reduce fuel, energy, water and other resources needed to move each ton-mile of freight.
  • Increase recycling and reuse efforts through waste minimization.
  • Strive to manage the CSX supply chain in consideration of environmental effects and good governance.

Engage openly on sustainability issues.

  • Communicate regularly with customers, employees and external stakeholders on sustainability issues, goals and efforts.
  • Provide opportunities to customers, suppliers, employees and communities to actively participate in sustainability programs.
  • Increase transparency and disclosure of our sustainability performance through our annual Corporate Social Responsibility Report and related sustainability disclosures.

Support sustainable development.

  • Collaborate with customers and communities to grow sustainably, considering social, economic and environmental effects.
  • Build innovative infrastructure to support operations and minimize resource use.
Corporate Social Responsibility Reports

CSX issues an annual Corporate Responsibility Report to outline our approach, provide an update on the economic, workforce, environmental and social impacts over the last year, and track progress against goals. We believe sustainability and responsibility benefit all of our stakeholders. Download the 2017 CSR Data Supplement to learn more about how we operate and who we are.
