MONTREAL, QUÉBEC, CANADA —The Canadian National Railway (CN) was listed to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI) for the sixth consecutive year. CN is the only Canadian company listed in the Transportation and Transportation Infrastructure sector.

The DJSI follows a best-in-class approach, surveying sustainability leaders from each industry on a global and regional level.

"At CN, running a safe and sustainable railroad is at the core of our business culture and community spirit,” said Luc Jobin, CN president and chief executive officer. “It touches every aspect of what we do, enabling us to build a strong future for our customers, employees and the communities in which we operate." 

The DJSI World Index selects for inclusion the top 10% of the 2,500 largest companies in the S&P Global Broad Market Index from each sector based on their sustainability scores.

Launched in 1999, the DJSI World is the gold standard for corporate sustainability and the first global index to track the leading sustainability-driven companies based on RobecoSAM's analysis of financially relevant Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors and S&P DJSI's robust index methodology. RobecoSAM invited the world's largest 3,400 companies from developed and emerging markets to take part in its annual Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA).

CN said delivering responsibly is at the core for building a sustainable future. It means moving customer goods safely and efficiently, being environmentally responsible, attracting and developing the best railroaders, helping build safer, stronger communities, while adhering to the highest ethical standards. 

“We are proud of our Delivering Responsibly philosophy – it drives how we conduct our business and supports our continuing transformational journey,” the company said.
