JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CSX Corporation (NYSE: CSX) today announced that the company achieved a position on the CDP Supplier Climate Performance Leadership Index (SCPLI) for environmental stewardship in 2013. CSX was recognized for its steadfast commitment to helping its customers make informed transportation decisions that reduce carbon emissions and meet their sustainability goals.

"At CSX, we take seriously our responsibility to help customers understand their carbon footprint and capitalize on the environmental benefits of freight rail to reduce transportation-related emissions while improving efficiency," said Michael Ward, chief executive officer of CSX. "We are honored to be included on the CDP Supplier Climate Performance Leadership Index and continue to look for new ways to partner with customers to implement environmentally sustainable technologies and practices."

The CDP index, compiled by FirstCarbon Solutions (FCS), serves as an evaluation tool for supply chain members and participating suppliers, highlighting top companies' best practices for reducing their carbon footprints and optimizing performance. In its pilot year, the index is recognizing 80 companies based on analysis from more than 2,800 responses to CDP's 2013 supply chain questionnaire.

In 2013, CSX was recognized on the CDP S&P 500 Carbon Performance Leadership Index (CPLI) for its emissions reductions and fuel use, and was the only railroad among five industrial companies to earn a spot on the CDP Climate Performance Leadership Index. CSX was also in the top 10 of 40 industrial companies on the 2013 Global Climate Performance Leadership Index, which evaluates the sustainability efforts of the world's 500 largest companies.
