Rail is the most sustainable way to move goods long distances over land, and BNSF is a recognized leader. Here are just a few ways BNSF makes sure its railroad is part of the solution for a cleaner, healthier planet:

  • Cleaner, Smarter Machines: No other form of land freight transportation is more fuel- and resource-efficient than rail, which accounts for more than 40 percent of long-distance freight volumes in the U.S.
  • Helping Customers Make Green Choices: BNSF provides a carbon calculator method that shows customers just how much they can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by putting their shipments on rail instead of the highway.
  • Ongoing Innovation: BNSF is continuously working on ways to lower emissions. A great example of these efforts is the development and testing of a 100-percent battery-electric locomotive.
