CN yesterday recognized 32 shippers for employing sustainability practices that are aligned with the objectives of the Class I's EcoConnexions program.

Through its EcoConnexions Partnership Program, CN seeks partner companies that pledge to reduce their carbon emissions and increase energy efficiency — a central focus of the Class I's sustainability objectives, CN officials said in a press release.

The 32 shippers that earned recognition from the railroad are Alcoa Corp.; Atlantic Container Line; Bunge North America; Bonduelle Canada; Canfor; Cenovus Energy Inc.; CMA CGM (America) LLC; COSCO Shipping Lines (North America); Domtar Corp.; E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Co.; Fairmount Santrol; Ford Motor Co.; Hapag-Lloyd; Kruger Products LP; Labatt Breweries of Canada; Loblaws Inc.; Maersk Line; MOL; Mondelez International; NYK Line; OOCL (Orient Overseas Container Line); PepsiCo Canada; Resolute Forest Products; Teck Resources Ltd.; Tembec; Tenaris; UPS; Verso Corp.; Walmart Canada; West Fraser; Weyerhaeuser; and Yang Ming Group.

"CN is proud to partner with these companies and congratulates each of them on their sustainability efforts," said Jean-Jacques Ruest, CN's executive vice president and chief marketing officer. "In partnership with Tree Canada, [we] will plant 100,000 trees in the spring in recognition of [these] customers' commitment to sustainable business practices."
