Canadian National on Friday, Sept. 19, 2014 recognized 11 of its intermodal customers "for their sustainability practices that are aligned with the objectives of the CN EcoConnexions program."

Under the CN EcoConnexions Partnership Program, participating companies work to reduce carbon emissions and increase energy efficiency, one of CN’s key sustainability objectives, Montreal-based CN said.

The 11 winners under CN’s recognition program are: CMA-CGM, Cosco, Hapag Lloyd, Kruger Products, Maersk Line, MOL, Mondelez Canada, NYK, OOCL Canada, Target Canada, and Walmart Canada.

CN said it will plant 11,000 trees next spring in recognition of its customers’ commitment to sustainable business practices.

JJ Ruest, CN executive vice-president and chief marketing officer, said, “CN is proud to partner with these 11 companies that signed up for our partnership program. Our ultimate goal is to deepen our relationships and, by doing so, to learn from each other as we move toward a more sustainable future together.”
