CEO Wick Moorman
Five years ago, we launched our formal sustainability program at Norfolk Southern with the goal of achieving industry leadership in fuel conservation, emissions reduction, efficient energy use, recycling, use of renewable materials, and environmental partnerships.
This fifth edition of our corporate sustainability report documents satisfying progress toward achievement of our mission. While a five-year anniversary represents a snapshot of our continuous journey, I am pleased with the progress we have made and the plans we have for strengthening connections with our people, communities, customers, investors, and all those who have a stake in Norfolk Southern’s success.

CSO Blair Wimbush
Norfolk Southern’s sustainability program at age 5 can be likened to one of the 6 million trees we’ve committed to plant in the Mississippi Alluvial Valley. It’s in the ground, it’s well rooted, and it’s growing strong, supported by nurturing partners.
That’s what our sustainability program is all about – connecting with partners who share our vision for responsible corporate environmental stewardship.
I am pleased to report that in the past year leading up to this 2012 sustainability report, we have made significant progress toward fulfillment of several major initiatives as part of our overall sustainability mission.
