For BNSF, nothing is more important than safety. Our approach to safety is built on the personal responsibility that every BNSF team member brings for themselves, their colleagues, communities, our customers’ freight and the environment.
BNSF plays a vital role in our economy by keeping freight moving across our country. As the world and supply chains continue to change and evolve, BNSF is prepared to meet the needs of our customers, employees and communities by providing the most sustainable mode of land-based freight transportation.
BNSF helps get consumer goods to store shelves, moves grain that becomes the food we eat and transports energy resources that heat and cool the homes and offices where we live and work. With each of these moves, the environmental impacts of the commodities we transport are reduced thanks to rail’s efficiency. Building on this efficiency contributes to lowering carbon emissions, decreasing environmental impacts, enhancing safety and lowering transportation costs for us and our customers.
At BNSF, we pursue technologies that enhance our ability to continually operate a safe and efficient railroad. We recognize that exploring and investing in the technologies of the future are critical for us to meet the needs of our customers, employees, communities and the environment.
Our people are key to BNSF’s continued success, and working together we will realize our tremendous potential. Every day our team members remain focused on operating an even safer and more efficient railroad, consistently serving our customers, building strong relationships with the communities in which we operate and minimizing our impact on the environment.
Partnering with the communities in which we operate helps BNSF continue our cycle of sustainable growth. Communities are instrumental to our social license to operate and are essential to enhancing our initiatives to improve safety and reduce our environmental impact. In turn, BNSF provides economic value to communities through the movement of essential goods, along with key projects and partnerships.
