CN has been awarded a position on The A List: The CDP Climate Performance Leadership Index 2014 in recognition of its action to reduce carbon emissions and mitigate the business risks of climate change, the railroad said yesterday. The index presents 187 listed companies identified as demonstrating a superior approach to climate change mitigation, CN said.
It has been produced by CDP, the international non-governmental organization that drives sustainable economies, at the request of 767 investors who represent more than a third of the world’s invested capital. Information provided by nearly 2,000 listed companies has been independently assessed against CDP’s widely-respected scoring methodology and ranked accordingly.
This marks the sixth consecutive year that CN has earned a position of leadership for its climate performance by CDP, the world’s only global environmental disclosure system.
