CN this week recognized 68 of its customers, suppliers and supply chain partners for their commitment to sustainable business practices.

This year, the Class I extended the program to its suppliers in recognition of the pivotal role they play in supporting CN’s day-to-day operations and in the advancement of the company’s sustainability ambitions, CN officials said in a press release.

"Engaging with our suppliers is critical to achieving CN’s sustainability goals. Sustainable procurement is an important part of how we are delivering responsibly and championing sustainability across our value chain," said JJ Dratva, CN’s assistant vice president of procurement and supply management.

CN's EcoConnexions Partnership Program honors companies that are dedicated to building a more sustainable future by supporting climate action, reducing their environmental impact, promoting biodiversity and more sustainable and ethical business practices.
