CN has been recognized for leadership in corporate sustainability by global environmental nonprofit CDP, the Class I announced today.

CN was recognized for its actions to cut emissions, mitigate climate risks and help develop a low-carbon economy, based on the data the company reported through CDP’s 2021 climate change questionnaire.

CN is one of 200 high-performing companies to make the "A-list" out of nearly 12,000 companies that were scored.

"We are proud to have secured a place on CDP's A-list for the sixth time as well as being recognized for the twelfth time," said CN President and CEO JJ Ruest in a press release. "Our goal is to conduct our operations with minimal environmental impact while providing cleaner, more sustainable transportation services to our customers."

Since 1993, CN has reduced its locomotive emission intensity by 43%, avoiding over 48 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions, Ruest said.
