Canadian National (CN) has been recognized for leadership in corporate sustainability by global environmental non-profit CDP, securing a place on its prestigious ‘A List’ for tackling climate change. CN was recognized for its actions to cut emissions, mitigate climate risks and develop the low-carbon economy, based on the data reported by the company 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. Through significant demonstrable action on climate, CN is leading on corporate environmental ambition, action and transparency worldwide.
Recognizing the urgency of the fight against climate change, CN is committed to improving our carbon intensity consistent with stabilizing global temperatures.
Our new 2030 horizon science-based targets that reflect a well-below 2°C scenario were approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) in April 2021.
CN recently signed the “Business Ambition for 1.5°C” and joined the “Race To Zero” Campaign, committing to setting targets in line with a 1.5°C scenario and net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
As CN looks to 2030 and beyond, decarbonizing rail transportation will continue to require innovative fuel-efficient technologies, the greater use of cleaner sustainable fuels, and designing innovative low emission supply chain solutions. CN also recognizes the importance of collaborating with governments, supply chain partners, universities, cleantech, fuel producers, locomotive/engine manufacturers and working with customers on evolving markets and infrastructure adaptation in achieving an effective transition to a lower carbon future. Recently, CN announced important partnerships regarding renewable fuels testing and the purchase of a battery-electric locomotive for joint pilot projects.
