BNSF and the Environment

At BNSF, we believe it is good business and good citizenship to minimize our impact on the planet and to contribute to the long-term sustainability of every community we serve. Railroads are by far the most environmentally friendly mode of surface transportation, and BNSF is a leader in the rail industry for the protection of our air, land and water.

BNSF plays a vital role in our nation's economy. Rail carries more than 40 percent of our nation's freight, and what we transport touches nearly every individual in all walks of life: grain, soybeans, lumber, steel, plastic, ethanol, coal and more. We do this while reducing emissions, saving fuel and relieving highway congestion.

Rail also provides a tremendous opportunity beyond fuel efficiency and sustainability: it reduces supply chain costs, allowing American businesses to be more competitive in the global market. A BNSF train can move one ton of freight 500 miles on just one gallon of diesel fuel.
