Union Pacific Railroad has launched a new employee-led business resource group focused on environmental sustainability.
Called “Planet Tracks,” the new group is dedicated to “helping employees champion and promote environmental stewardship and sustainability initiatives,” UP officials reported in the Class I’s Inside Track newsletter.
The volunteer-based group is open to all employees who are interested in environmental sustainability. More than 400 have already joined.
Planet Tracks is the first business resource group dedicated to sustainability at a Class I, said UP Chairman, President and CEO Lance Fritz.
“We’re not doing this just for our generation, but for the generations to come,” he said.
