NSInfo In new sustainability report, Norfolk Southern outlines “what efficiency looks like”

NORFOLK, Va., Aug. 9, 2016 – Cleaner-running locomotives. Greater energy efficiency. Support for safer communities. Fewer workplace injuries. A more diverse workforce.

Those are among key achievements highlighted in Norfolk Southern’s new online sustainability report, “What Efficiency Looks Like.” The report details NS’ progress toward achieving a healthy balance between its business imperatives as a publicly traded company and its environmental and social commitments as a responsible corporate citizen.

“Efficiently moving freight trains across our 22-state network is a cornerstone of sustainability at Norfolk Southern” said CEO Jim Squires. “It’s about turning challenges into daily opportunities – keeping our people and communities safe, providing unequalled customer service, and being a good steward of the resources that contribute to our success.”

“Corporate sustainability at Norfolk Southern means acting responsibly in the conduct of our business, which enhances our ability to grow business,” said Bruno Maestri, vice president government relations and corporate sustainability officer. “We are part of the fabric of the communities where we operate, and we want to add value by what Norfolk Southern brings to our communities.”

Among report highlights, NS in 2015:

Environmental Performance

· Rolled out a new class of low-emission Eco locomotives at rail yards in Atlanta and Chicago.

· Introduced a custom plug-in engine-heating system at rail yards that reduces unnecessary locomotive idling in cold weather.

· Adopted a five-year goal to improve locomotive fuel efficiency, which will contribute to the company’s goal to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions.

Economic Performance

· Returned more than $700 million in dividends to shareholders, representing a 6 percent increase in dividends per share for the year.

· Supported the location of 61 new industries and 32 industry expansions along NS rail lines, representing $4.2 billion in customer investment and more than 6,100 new customer jobs.

· Contributed more than $13.7 million in combined Norfolk Southern Foundation, corporate, and business giving in communities served by the railroad to support human service needs, arts and culture, environment, and education.

Social Performance

· Recorded a 13 percent decline in employee reportable injuries.

· Hired a record number of female employees: 28 percent of management trainees and 7 percent of conductor trainees were women.

· Formed local employee diversity and inclusion councils in each of the railroad’s 10 operating divisions.

· Helped train more than 4,800 local emergency responders in safe response to potential incidents involving transport of product regulated as hazardous material.

Very satisfied with the service cable and internet are great. When you own your equipment and know to use the fullest capabilities of your devices and the service itself contribute to an awesome experience, would not think of switching to other service providers. Wifi extends at least to Five houses away from mine, with speeds up to 28mbps down and 5 up on the basic internet plan. Fast and reliable phone connection too. Overall monthly service price could be more competitive though.

The restored bridge Just as great as the original, its safe and is historically accurate. The current restoration resembles the original bridge when it carried water "like a tub" for the canal boats crossing over the Delaware. The cables are inside the tub structure, not like on a road bridge where they are fully visible.

Great friendly short line railway, had a blast on the recent Lehigh Limited trip, for the 110th anniversary of the M&E. The M&E does a great job for what they have and own as a rail company. Hope they can expand operations in Northern NJ, and soon add more of those great excursion trips like the Lehigh Limited was.

One of the best tourist scenic train rides in country, as a railroader two thumbs up. The day I took the train it was raining so the train on the first and second attempts did not make the grade to Frostburg on third try the train made it up the hill, as a railroader wow the experience was unique.
