3BLMedia/ Coprorate Social Responsibility/ Green Technology - 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.
Later this year, BNSF will test liquefied natural gas as fuel in locomotives in a variety of weather and grade conditions. The use of natural gas as a transportation fuel results in the emission of fewer greenhouse gases and particulates than diesel fuel.
Electric wide span cranes have been installed in three facilities across the country, with a fourth planned in the L.A. area for the Southern California International Gateway (SCIG) project. These cranes do not produce any local emissions and generate energy when the cranes are lowered.

Umair Haque (Havas ML) on Social Responsibility
Tackling poverty is one of the most critical challenges faced by India. Lack of education is the root cause of poverty (and associated problems). This is despite the fact that education is highly subsidized by the Indian government (the monthly school fees is less than $1 in government schools). Most students drop out after grade 8 and 9 because they are not able to keep up with the studies. The subjects get tougher. The education in government schools though free is not adequate. To overcome this problem, Koenig provides extra tutoring in the evening at rented premises close to 3 government schools in North West Delhi. This has been a very successful project. The dropout rate has gone down significantly and the students are performing better in studies (as indicated by their exam results).
