CSX CORP : CSX Recognized by Maryland Green Registry for Environmental Stewardship

06/08/2011 | 12:55pm US/Eastern

JESSUP, Md., June 8, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --

CSX Corporation today announced the company has received the Maryland Green Registry's 2011 Leadership Award for its commitment to improvements and achievements in environmental stewardship.

The award specifically highlights CSX's deployment of ultra-low emission GenSet locomotives around its network, including the company's Curtis Bay Yard in Baltimore, Md. That GenSet, the 21st acquired by CSX, is the first of two to be deployed in Maryland and represents an innovative public-private partnership between CSX, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Mid-Atlantic Regional Air Management Association (MARAMA).

"We appreciate the Maryland Green Registry recognizing our dedication to improving air quality and the company's overall commitment to environmental sustainability in the State of Maryland," said Carl Gerhardstein, assistant vice president, environmental systems and sustainability, CSX. "Deploying GenSets in Maryland is part of our company-wide initiative to continue capitalizing on the environmental benefits of shipping freight by rail."

The Maryland Green Registry is a voluntary initiative of the State of Maryland, designed to share best practices in environmental leadership among companies dedicated to improving their environmental footprints in the state. CSX joined the Registry in 2010 to share experiences with and learn from companies seeking to become better environmental stewards.

In addition to deploying GenSets, CSX is investing significant resources in the National Gateway in Maryland, an innovative public-private partnership that will modernize aging infrastructure to allow for more efficient double-stacked intermodal trains. Double-stacking containers allows freight to be moved more efficiently, reducing fuel use and emissions and improving air quality for Maryland residents. CSX also recently announced that the company achieved ahead of schedule its voluntary goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 8 percent per revenue ton mile by the end of 2011.
