CN started the EcoConnexions Program to promote environmental awareness and initiatives among CN employees across North America. In 2014, the program was extended to include customers whose organizations promote sustainability, environmental and social responsibility through their policies and actions.
Customers are invited to partake in the program based on their ability to reduce GHG emissions by converting from truck to rail shipments. Submissions are evaluated based on sustainable policies, energy efficiency, reporting to the Carbon Disclosure Project, and modal shift to rail.
In 2016, the following companies were chosen as CN’s EcoConnexions Partners:
Cenovus Energy Inc
China Cosco Shipping Corporation Ltd
CMA CGM (America) LLC
Ford Motor Company
Kruger Products LP
Labatt Brewing Company Ltd
Maersk Line A/S
OOCL Canada Inc
Resolute Forest Products
To recognize their sustainability efforts, 100,000 trees will be planted in 2016. CN is proud to partner with environmentally responsible customers who share our commitment of preserving and protecting the environment.
