CN’s EcoConnexions program recognizes companies for their sustainable business practices and commitment “to reducing their environmental footprint and being part of the climate solution.”

CN is honoring 55 customers and supply chain partners for sustainability leadership as part of its EcoConnexions Partnership Program for 2021.

EcoConnexions recognizes companies for their sustainable business practices and commitment “to reducing their environmental footprint and being part of the climate solution,” said CN, adding that its programs engage employees, communities, and customers and supply chain partners “to help us achieve our goals of reducing emissions, conserving resources and increasing biodiversity.”

Acknowledging the 55 companies’ efforts (see list below), the Class I railroad is collaborating with Tree Canada to plant 100,000 trees this year in Canada and the United States. Through EcoConnexions and CN’s community tree planting program, From the Ground Up, the railroad has planted more than 2 million trees since 2012.
