The Thoroughbred Code of Ethics connects employees to Norfolk Southern’s core values and the corporate policies and procedures guiding business conduct. The code, which was updated in 2014, includes chapters on maintaining a safe work environment; providing support and respect at work; conducting business with integrity; ensuring financial integrity; safeguarding corporate assets and information; and representing the company with a unified voice.

As the foundation of the company’s ethics and compliance program, the code is overseen by an Ethics and Compliance Committee, whose membership includes the chief executive officer, president, executive vice presidents, and vice president audit and compliance. The code applies to employees, officers, and board of directors, and it can apply to others working on the company’s behalf or at our direction.

The code includes chapters on maintaining a safe work environment; providing support and respect at work; conducting business with integrity; ensuring financial integrity; safeguarding corporate assets and information; and representing the company with a unified voice.

As part of ongoing education and awareness, management employees receive an annual ethics survey and questionnaire. Depending on job position, employees receive periodic training to ensure they uphold federal laws covering antitrust, fair competition, and insider trading.
