More support for UN Global Compact initiative
Canadian National Railway (CN) has joined the United Nations Global Compact initiative — a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation and disclosure of responsible business practices.
Launched in 2000, UN Global Compact is the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world, with more than 15,000 companies and 3,800 non-business signatories based in over 160 countries, and more than 69 local networks.
UN Global Compact calls for companies everywhere to align their operations and strategies with universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption, and to take action in support of UN targets and issues embodied in the sustainable development goals.
