CP is committed to providing transportation services and supply chain solutions for businesses across North America, while supporting and investing in the growth of our people and communities along our network.
At CP, we recognize the scope of our potential environmental impacts and we are committed to minimizing the environmental footprint of our rail operations. In recent years we have made significant enhancements to our network, operating practices and locomotive fleet, to dramatically improve the efficiency of our operations. Implementation of precision scheduled railroading, investments in refurbished locomotives, integration of fuel use best practices, and upgraded infrastructure and technology, have helped CP improve fuel efficiency by approximately 15 percent since 2012.
The safety and security of our people and the communities in which we operate is important to us. We are North America's safest Class 1 railroad with the lowest Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) reportable train accident frequency for the past 12 years. Safety is ingrained in every aspect of our culture and we continually seek to improve our safety practices and raise the bar on rail safety.
People are at the center of everything we do: the goods we transport, the jobs we create and the communities in which we operate. As a responsible operator, we value the opinions and perspectives of all our stakeholders and are committed to collaboration, two-way dialogue and building mutually beneficial relationships. Through open communication, we work to address local issues of importance and to create positive, lasting socio-economic impacts. As a company, we pride ourselves on fostering a high-performance culture rooted in respect and inclusion, to create an environment where all of our employees can thrive personally and professionally.

At CP, we understand that the rail sector can play a significant role in achieving the necessary reductions to address global climate change. We take pride in our ability to provide our customers and communities with the opportunity to use a cleaner, safer mode of transportation to move their goods to market. While we are proud of our accomplishments to date in managing the carbon footprint associated with our operations, we recognize that there is still more to be done.

CDP since 2010. As part of our transformational sustainability journey, we are actively working with CDP to improve our transparency through continuous refinement of our sustainability disclosure and reporting practices.
