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.
