CSX Announces SBTi Approved Emissions Intensity Goal

The Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi) has approved CSX Corporation’s new emissions intensity goal. CSX, the first railroad in North America to receive the SBTi approval, plans to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions intensity by 37.3 percent between 2014 and 2030.

CSX is investing in new technologies and operational practices that drive maximum achievable efficiencies. In 2018, CSX achieved its greenhouse gas goal to reduce emissions intensity by 6 to 8 percent by 2020, achieving an 8.1 percent emissions intensity reduction.

CSX, the only U.S. class I railroad to have crossed the threshold of operating below one gallon of fuel-per-thousand gross ton miles, is pursuing opportunities for additional improvement as part of its commitment to sustainable business practices.
