Accelerating Freight Transport Decarbonization

The transportation industry is one of the largest contributors of carbon emissions, representing almost 30% of U.S. emissions. While consumer solutions like EVs receive a lot of attention, addressing emissions across the entire shipping and logistics industry is critical to achieving decarbonization goals. Sustainable transportation addresses these climate concerns while also helping organizations achieve efficiency and profitability gains.

About Josh

Appointed Chief Sustainability Officer in 2020, Raglin leads Norfolk Southern’s sustainability strategy by championing sustainable practices in the company’s daily operations to achieve efficiencies, control costs, generate revenue, and reduce environmental impacts. These efforts include close collaboration with department leaders company-wide, along with external stakeholders such as customers, investors, suppliers, and communities.

Raglin joined Norfolk Southern in 1996 as a Forest Ranger at Brosnan Forest, the company’s 14,400 acre conference and research facility in South Carolina. He would continue rising through the ranks at Brosnan Forest before being named General Manager Facilities in 2006.

For two decades, Josh led the railroad’s efforts to create a nature-based solutions platform. This innovative approach optimizes multiple ecological assets such as forest carbon sequestration, wetland and stream restoration, and land conservation while generating revenues from both forestry and traditional land-management practices.

He shares his experience with the next generation of environmentalists by serving on college advisory boards for Auburn University, Clemson University, and Georgia Tech. He also serves the greater community as an active board member with several conservation groups, including US Endowment for Forestry and Communities and The Longleaf Alliance.
