Union Pacific Reports Environmental Strategies, Stewardship And Risks To CDP

OMAHA, Neb., July 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In its sixth annual public disclosure to CDP, Union Pacific submitted climate change data, discussing efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. For the first time, the company also outlined efforts to responsibly manage water in the CDP's water questionnaire.
Union Pacific.

Illustrating the role environmental sustainability plays in Union Pacific's business planning and operations, the company details the following actions:
  • Pioneering and testing technology to improve fuel efficiency, such as the Arrowedge®, an aerodynamic innovation for double-stack intermodal trains.
  • Managing infrastructure, equipment and operations through training and awareness to increase fuel efficiency.
  • Establishing plans for preserving habitats. For example, the railroad has developed processes to protect the desert tortoise, an endangered species.
  • Engaging with the public, shareholders, customers, suppliers and employees through direct communications, disclosure of Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions, and the company's Carbon Emission Estimator.

Union Pacific works with Trinity Consultants to compile its greenhouse gas inventory, and Conestoga-Rovers & Associates verified Union Pacific's 2013 greenhouse gas inventory. Conestoga-Rovers & Associates and Trinity Consultants are independent organizations.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, trains emit an average of 75 percent less greenhouse gas emissions than trucks. A single Union Pacific train can replace as many as 300 trucks, decreasing emissions and reducing stress on the nation's deteriorating road and bridge infrastructure.
