At BNSF, we’re committed to minimizing our impact on the planet by pursuing sustainable business practices that lead to greater innovation and more efficient solutions for our customers. Although rail is already one of the most sustainable transportation options, there’s always room for improvement. That’s why we’re proud to launch our annual BNSF Sustainability Awards program. The program recognizes significant sustainability achievements by our customers in categories like: Investments in Circular Economy Infrastructure, Supply Chain Efficiencies, and Sustainable Technology Implementation. “Winners of the BNSF Sustainability Award are helping us build green supply chains that increase efficiencies and reduce emissions, positively impacting the environment and the communities we serve,” says John Lovenburg, BNSF Vice President, Environment & Sustainability. In the program’s first year, six BNSF customers received the prestigious honor, including Big River Steel for achieving a ResponsibleSteel™ certification and Ford Motor Company for helping design and produce a rail car with greater capacity for Ford’s new fleet of electric vehicles. The commitment of all six winners to reducing their impact on the planet is an inspiration to us all.
