Breathe LA Video

Multimedia with summary

The Breathe LA video includes comments from California stakeholders, including Lt. Governor of California Gavin Newsom, on BNSF's leadership in hybrid energy options, research into liquefied natural gas, and implementation of wide-span electric cranes.

Since 2000, BNSF has purchased 3,000 new locomotives and have remanufactured 2,400 existing locomotives. These investments, along with the installation of idle-control technology, have resulted in a significant decrease in emissions and better fuel efficiency.

BNSF Honored for Clean Air Technology Developments in Southern California


BNSF received the 2013 Innovation Breath of Life Award from BREATHE LA for exemplary work on clean air initiatives and technological advances to reduce emissions.

BREATHE LA, founded in 1903, is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting clean air and healthy lungs through research, education, and technology.

According to BREATHE LA, the Breath of Life Awards serve to “recognize environmental standards and emissions reduction efforts to ensure that our community is no longer disproportionally impacted by pollution generated by the high volume of goods movement.”
