Keltner receives top environmental stewardship award

Charles Keltner has been awarded the John H. Chafee Environmental Excellence Award.  The Chafee award recognizes a railroad employee and a member of Congress who have demonstrated the highest level of environmental stewardship during the previous year.

Keltner, senior manager of corporate facilities for Burlington Northern Santa Fe, was one of six railroad employees nominated to receive the Chafee Award. Among his accomplishments are programs at the BNSF corporate campus that have reduced irrigation needs by 30 million gallons, implementation of a single stream recycling program that recovers almost half of all waste generated and use of innovative roofing materials to reduce air conditioning needs by up to 15 percent.
