Apr. 18, 2017 - Canadian National Railway (CN) has announced 32 of its customers for their sustainability practices that are aligned with the objectives of the CN EcoConnexions program.

The annual awards are given to customers who are working to reduce carbon emissions and increase energy efficiency across their supply chains through energy efficiency and carbon reduction programs, sustainability policies, public reporting to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), and through modal shift to rail.

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.

Congratulations to the pulp and paper industry partners under CN’s recognition program:

• Canfor
• Domtar Corporation
• Kruger Products LP
• Resolute Forest Products
• Tembec
• Verso Corporation
• West Fraser
• Weyerhaeuser

“CN is proud to partner with these companies and congratulates each of them on their sustainability efforts,” said JJ Ruest, CN executive vice-president and chief marketing officer. He said CN will plant 100,000 trees, in partnership with Tree Canada, in the spring in recognition of its customers’ commitment to sustainable business practices.
