NS Manager Gets Environment Award

A Norfolk Southern manager has received the 2017 John H. Chafee Environmental Excellence Award from the Association of American Railroads.

Andrew Paul was honored for  having demonstrated a high level of environmental stewardship.

As a senior manager of energy and facility services for the past five years, Paul had outfitted more than 100 shop facilities, rail yards, and offices with longer-lasting, energy-efficient lighting and ventilation systems.

In a news release, the AAR said those improvements have generated a savings of $4.9 million in annual energy and maintenance costs and reduce emissions by nearly 36,000 metric tons.

Paul has also helped local NS managers better understand how energy is being used across the railroad through an energy audit program that highlights strategies to save money and reduce environmental impacts.

He is leading a three-year, $53 million energy conversion project at the railroad’s Juniata locomotive shops in Altoona, Pennsylvania.
