CSX was named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for North America for the seventh consecutive year, recognizing the company’s leadership in sustainable and responsible business practices. CSX was the only U.S.-based railroad and one of only three transportation companies included on the North American index in 2017.
In 2016, CSX generated $11.1 billion in net revenue and invested $2.7 billion to enhance the overall safety, capability and reliability of its network.
Now that Michael Ward has retired as CEO of CSX, he will remain in Jacksonville and continue the work that he loves as much as running a railroad—giving back to the community.
