A Message from the CEO
As a leading freight carrier, our railroad must invest in the communities we serve, and we must be a responsible steward of our environment.
Everything we do at Norfolk Southern is connected. The tracks we lay down are connected to the towns that surround them. Our business is connected to jobs, economies, environmental benefits, and efficient delivery of goods.
We are looking to strengthen existing connections with our communities and forge new ones. In acknowledgement of this shared future, we will do all we can to ensure that the legacy we leave - social, economic, and environmental - is positive for generations to come.
We invite you to explore this site to see where Norfolk Southern stands in our commitment to corporate responsibility. Our 2013 sustainability report reflects ongoing efforts to achieve a long-term, sustainable balance between the company’s business imperatives and our desire to mitigate the impact of railroad operations on the environment.
