by Inside Logistics Online Staff

Canadian Pacific is the first freight rail company in North America to participate in the United Nations (UN) Global Compact, a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation and disclosure of socially responsible business practices.

Launched in 2000, the UN Global Compact is the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world, with more than 15,000 participating companies in over 160 countries.

“CP’s participation in the UN Global Compact marks an important milestone as we advance our commitments and position as a sustainability leader in the rail industry,” said Keith Creel, CP’s president and CEO.

“CP is proud to join thousands of other companies globally committed to sustainable and responsible business action.”

Creel added that CP is committed to aligning its strategies and operations with 10 principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption and taking action in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

CP recently received the 2022 World Finance Sustainability Award for Most Sustainable Company in Transportation. This marks the third consecutive year that World Finance has recognized CP.
