Our objective for this report was to assess how effective the company has been in achieving its emissions-reduction goals. We found that the company appears to be on track to reach its 2030 goal to reduce emissions by 40 percent below its 2010 baseline, to purchase 100 percent carbon-free electricity by 2030, and to purchase 100 percent renewable electricity by 2035. We identified, however, two opportunities that could help it more easily achieve these goals. First, the company could collect and analyze its own data to reduce idling time for diesel locomotives. Second, it could require sustainability training for management employees. To address the report’s findings, we recommended that the company analyze its data to better target and reduce excess idling. Further, to ensure management employees are aware of the company’s sustainability goals, we recommend that the company make its sustainability training mandatory for all management employees.
