CN Named to Dow Jones Sustainability Index

MONTREAL — CN said its sustainability practices have earned it a place on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) North America for the second year in a row.

CN is the only railway among three large North American industrial transportation companies named to the DJSI North America for 2010-2011.

The DJSI follows a best-in-class approach, including sustainability leaders from each industry on a global and regional level. The annual review of the DJSI family is based on a thorough analysis of economic, environmental and social performance, assessing issues such as corporate governance, risk management, branding, climate change mitigation, supply chain standards and labour practices.

Claude Mongeau, president and chief executive officer of CN, said: “CN knows the long-term success of the company will reflect sustainable practices, and we are honoured that the DJSI has recognized CN as a leader in the area again this year.
