Adam Motsinger wins environmental excellence award
The Association of American Railroads (AAR) has awarded Norfolk Southern Railway’s (NS) Adam Motsinger with the 2023 environmental excellence award, the industry’s highest honour for environmental professionals.
Motsinger has supported NS environmental operations since 2017 and currently serves as manager environmental operations. By identifying deficiencies and proposing solutions, he has helped NS create opportunities to extend its sustainability track record and minimise potential impacts to the environment.
Among other things, Motsinger helped lead the NS operation clean sweep programme that helps capture microplastics at transfer terminals and divert them from landfills. He has championed nutrient bank development opportunities at Lamberts Point Living Shoreline, which restored the river while also providing critical flooding protection for the railroad. (cj)
