CSX Named To Dow Jones Sustainability Index For Third Consecutive Year

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CSX (NYSE:CSX) today announced that the company was named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) for North America for the third consecutive year. CSX is among three transportation companies recognized by the index for leadership in sustainable business practices.

"At CSX, our commitment to sustainable growth is a key driver of our success," said Michael J. Ward, chairman, president and chief executive officer. "We strive to manage our operations responsibly to meet the needs of our customers, protect the environment and to engage in the communities that we serve."

CSX demonstrated strong performance broadly across assessed criteria, specifically in the areas of customer relationship management, climate strategy, and occupational health and safety.

Notable CSX accomplishments include improving company-wide fuel efficiency by 2 percent this year and implementing a new waste-reduction program that helped recycle 50,000 tons of material since 2010. During 2012, CSX provided more than $14 million in corporate giving to communities throughout its network and employees logged more than 26,000 volunteer hours. The company is on track to increase corporate giving to $15 million in 2013 and to meet its goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions intensity by 6 to 8 percent by 2020.

The DJSI is a partnership between the Dow Jones Indexes and RobecoSAM Sustainability Assessments, which tracks the financial performance of the world's leading companies according to rigorous economic, environmental and social criteria. Launched in 1999, the DJSI is the first global sustainability benchmark for companies that prioritize environmental sustainability and social responsibility.
