CSX on April 22, 2016 announced that it has been recognized as one of Corporate Responsibility Magazine’s Best Corporate Citizens for 2016 “reflecting [the railroad’s] ongoing commitment to being a good neighbor in the communities it served.” CSX, which has now made four appearances on the list, ranked 47 out of 100, and was the only railroad included in the ranking.

“As we continue to shape CSX to meet the demands of tomorrow, we remain dedicated to safe and responsible operations,” said Michael J. Ward, Chairman and CEO. “Investing in our employees, communities, and the environment, and developing technologies for more efficient performance, are key aspects of creating a strong foundation for CSX’s future.”

CSX’s performance on the list highlights the company’s grant programs and in-kind donations, increased data transparency, continued shareholder returns, and progress on its 2020 sustainability goals.

CSX will soon be issuing its sixth Corporate Social Responsibility Report, which outlines 2015 performance and goals across key areas, including financial performance, governance, safety, employees, environment, and communities. The report also demonstrates CSX’s relevancy to trends in the global marketplace and how CSX employees are living the company’s Core Values to drive responsible and positive business results every day.

The 100 Best Corporate Citizens List measures all Russell 1000 companies based on 260 publicly-available data points in seven categories: environment, climate, employee relations, human rights, governance, finance, and philanthropy and community support. The ranking is determined on a relative comparison.
