Reducing greenhouse gas emissions
Our railroad continued making strides in 2012 to reduce carbon emissions associated with business activities. It reflects our work to improve operating efficiencies, reduce locomotive fuel burn and emissions, upgrade our locomotive fleet with low-emission, fuel-efficient engines, and lower energy usage at railroad office buildings and facilities.
Goal: To reduce carbon emissions by 10 percent per revenue ton-mile between 2009 and 2014.
Status: We have reduced carbon emissions by 6.89 percent per revenue ton-mile, accomplishing nearly 69 percent of our goal by the end of 2012
