CN lands ‘A’ score for climate change

MONTREAL — CN has been recognized for leadership in corporate sustainability by global environmental non-profit CDP, securing a place on its ‘A List’ for tackling climate change.

“We are proud to be recognized by the CDP for the eleventh straight year,” said CN president and CEO JJ Ruest. “Our goal is to conduct our operations with minimal environmental impact while providing cleaner, more sustainable transportation services to our customers. Since 1993, we have reduced our locomotive emission intensity by 40 per cent, avoiding over 46 million tonnes of GHG emissions. CN’s 2020 CDP response outlines our commitment to support the transition to a low-carbon future, complementing our ongoing discussions with investors and the work we do with our customers on the matter of climate change.”

CN was recognized for its actions to cut emissions, mitigate climate risks and develop the low-carbon economy, based on the data reported by the company through CDP’s 2020 climate change questionnaire.
