Norfolk Southern’s trains can help companies lower their carbon footprints. Moving goods by rail offers environmentally friendly transportation that reduces greenhouse gas emissions and highway congestion.

Norfolk Southern recycles and modernizes older locomotives for better fuel economy and cleaner emissions in an innovative rebuild program.

Norfolk Southern’s “Trees and Trains” program mitigates carbon emissions. We invested $5.6 million to reforest 10,000 acres of the Mississippi Delta with 6 million trees that will generate more than 1 million tons of carbon-offset credits.
