CN recognises customers and supply chain partners for sustainability
(Posted on 03/09/18)
The CN EcoConnexions Partnership Programme celebrates companies that pledge to work to reduce their carbon emissions, increase energy efficiency and drive sustainable business practices throughout the supply chain.
“CN is proud to recognize these companies and supply chain partners and we congratulate each of them on their sustainability efforts,” said Mark Lerner, vice president of marketing and business development at CN. “On behalf of our EcoConnexions partners and in collaboration with Tree Canada, we are planting 100,000 trees in 2018 in Canada and the United States honouring these sustainability leaders for the work they do in their individual businesses and across their supply chains.”
The 40 partners recognised include: Alcoa Corporation; Bunge North America; Cargill Inc.; Canfor; Labatt Breweries of Canada; MOL; Montreal Port Authority; NYK Line; Prince Rupert Port Authority; and Vancouver Fraser Port Authority.
The EcoConnexions Partners will be recognised at a special ceremony in Vancouver on 4 October.
CN’s EcoConnexions programmes engage employees, communities and customers to help us achieve our goals of reducing emissions, conserving resources and increasing biodiversity. Through the EcoConnexions Partnership Program and our community tree planting program, From the Ground Up, CN has planted more than 1.8 million trees since 2012.
