Canadian Pacific has launched a web-based carbon emissions calculator that lets customers figure out the carbon impact of their shipments.

The tool makes complex, tailored emissions calculations and incorporates customer-specific shipping details to calculate route and commodity-specific greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

The carbon calculator allows CP’s customers to explore the impacts of their own emissions footprint and make decisions to reduce freight transportation emissions by choosing the lowest carbon-emitting mode of transportation. The tool provides an overview of lifecycle emissions from logistics services and a comparison of CP’s rail services to long-haul trucking alternatives.

“CP is committed to operating sustainably and being part of the solution in the transition to a less carbon intensive economy in North America,” said Keith Creel, CP president and CEO. “We are pleased to provide customers with a tool that allows them to better understand the carbon footprint associated with their shipping options and make informed choices that benefit the environment.”

CP said the carbon emissions calculator provides a framework to identify and collaborate on opportunities to reduce GHG emissions within supply chains.
