Canadian Pacific yesterday launched a web-based carbon emissions calculator designed to provide customers insight into the carbon footprint of its freight-rail transportation services.

The tool enables tailored emissions calculations and incorporates customer-specific shipping details to calculate route and commodity-specific greenhouse-gas (GHG) emissions.

The calculator enables CP's customers to determine the impact of their own emissions footprint and make decisions to reduce it by choosing lower carbon-emitting freight transportation service, CP officials said in a press release.

Additionally, the tool provides insight into the climate-related benefits of shipping freight with CP's rail services; an overview of lifecycle emissions from logistics services; and a comparison of CP's rail services to long-haul trucking alternatives, they said.

As part of the company's climate strategy, CP is focusing on operational efficiency and performance improvement, working to optimize energy consumption and reduce costs.

"CP is committed to operating sustainably and being part of the solution in the transition to a less carbon-intensive economy in North America," said President and CEO Keith Creel.
