Fortune considers nine factors that range from investment value to social responsibility. The list is then reviewed and approved by top executives, directors and analysts across different industries.

“As a premier transportation provider, we are committed to delivering safe and value-enhancing service for our customers, returns for our shareholders, opportunities for our employees, and respect for our neighbors,” said CSX Chairman, and CEO Michael J. Ward in a statement. “We’re focused on living our core values, which focus on safety, people, customers and integrity, to continue to create long-term, sustainable economic growth.”

In a news release, CSX said that over the past year it also has been recognized as a “Top 10 Company for Veterans” by G.I. JOBS Magazine, one of the “100 Best Places to Work in IT” by IDG Computerworld, a “Best Corporate Citizen” by Corporate Responsibility Magazine, and was ranked on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for the fifth consecutive year.
