Environmental Sustainability of Kansas City Southern:

Reducing our carbon footprint is not a buzz phrase at Kansas City Southern. It is our commitment that we will be responsible stewards of our environment by demonstrating resource efficiency and conservation of natural resources. Our focus is to reduce the amount of diesel gallons and CO2e emissions thru the use of technologies and improved processes. We have avoided emissions on 10.2M gallons of diesel fuel in 2019 thru October.  In 2019 KCS has proven to be responsible stewards of our environment by reducing our fuel consumption by 11%.
