CN nomineesCN (TSX: CNR) (NYSE: CNI) announces the launch of a new self-service, sustainability tool, My Carbon Emissions.

CN was first to launch the Carbon Calculator, 13 years ago, to give customers visibility into their estimated greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and emissions savings using rail transportation. Now, this new tool, available on the CN One eBusiness platform, provides customers with a detailed report of their estimated GHG emissions based on all their loaded shipments moved on CN, as well as the emissions avoided by choosing rail over truck. These insights into the environmental benefits of shipping via CN’s transcontinental network empowers customers to make data driven decisions that support their climate objectives.

As more companies are looking to quantify, and ultimately, lower their transportation GHG emissions, the information now available will allow customers to easily access and understand part of their Scope 3 emissions. It will also help identify opportunities for them to make more environmentally friendly transportation decisions. It demonstrates CN's commitment to innovate and offer solutions for its customers’ evolving needs.

“Rail has a tremendous potential to reduce the environmental impact of transportation and we are pleased to offer this enhanced tool to our customers, who are at the heart of what we do. Moving long-haul freight by train instead of truck can reduce GHG emissions by up to 75% and CN remains a leader in the North American rail industry, by consuming approximately 15% less locomotive fuel per gross ton mile."Doug MacDonald, executive vice president and chief marketing officer at CN.

CN is part of the climate solution and has set science-based targets to reduce its Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions intensity by 43% and Scope 3 emissions intensity for fuel- and energy-related activities by 40%, by 2030 from a 2019 base year. The Company is also committed to setting a net-zero 2050 carbon emission target aligned to a 1.5°C scenario. CN’s sustainability leadership is recognized through the inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI) and CDP’s Climate Change A List.
