Canadian Pacific joins UN Global Compact
Canadian Pacific has become 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 chief executive officer. “CP is proud to join thousands of other companies globally committed to sustainable and responsible business action.”
“CP is committed to aligning our strategies and operations with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption and taking action in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. CP will continue to demonstrate measurable impact on these goals through periodic updates and annual reporting to the UN Global Compact.”
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 recognised CP for its longstanding commitment to implementing sustainability measures across the organisation. Additionally, Corporate Knights has recognised CP as the top-rated freight transport company in Canada’s ‘Best 50 Corporate Citizens’ for 2022.
