EcoConnexions Programs - Living our Environmental Values

Three Dynamic Stakeholder Programs

Our EcoConnexions Programs encourage and support our environmental values and initiatives with key stakeholders, including employees, communities and customers.

EcoConnexions – Employee Engagement Program 

We launched the employee program in 2011, in partnership with Earth Day Canada, with the goals of conserving energy, reducing waste and improving housekeeping at CN yards and offices across North America. Investments for these initiatives are supported by our $5-million CN EcoFund, which reinvests the significant cost savings generated by our EcoChampion initiatives into new capital projects that generate energy conservation and waste reduction.


Thanks to the success of the employee program, EcoConnexions has expanded to help CN communities and customers build a sustainable future.

EcoConnexions – From the Ground Up Program

Our community program provides funding of up to $25,000 for the greening of municipal properties across Canada and the United States, especially communities along our rail lines. With our partners, Tree Canada and America in Bloom, we have helped 230 municipalities establish tree planting initiatives in a sustainable, environmentally responsible manner since 2012. In combination with a mass reforestation program, over 2 million trees have been planted across Canada and the U.S.

EcoConnexions – Partnership Program

Launched in partnership with Tree Canada in 2014, CN’s EcoConnexion Partnership program aims to both partner with and recognize customers who are committed to building an efficient and more sustainable future. In recognition to the sustainability efforts of our EcoConnexions Partners, CN has planted 628,000 trees to date to help rehabilitate agricultural land or to provide wind barriers and soil mitigation.
