Our Approach and Scope

The scope of information covered in this supplement relates to our operations in Canada and the U.S., in the 2017 to 2020 calendar years, unless otherwise noted. We issue our full Delivering Responsibly Sustainability Report on a biennial basis. This year we will be issuing our eighth report. All reports can be accessed at www.cn.ca/delivering-responsibly.

Reporting Standards

This report has been prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards: Core option. The GRI is an independent institution that provides a standard framework for sustainability reporting across companies and industries.

This report has also been prepared in accordance with the Rail Transportation Sustainability Accounting Standard developed by the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB). SASB connects businesses and investors on the financial impacts of sustainability.

We also provide information to the CDP, the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) and other organizations that assess our sustainability performance. An index of our

conformance to the GRI Standards: Core option and

SASB: Rail Transportation Sustainability Accounting Standard reporting requirements and references to other relevant information sources can be found at www.cn.ca/delivering-responsibly.

External Assurance

We are dedicated to continuously improving our sustainability reporting and believe that independent assurance leads to quality and process improvements. Our environmental data related to GHG emissions from Scope 1 (locomotive emissions), Scope 2 (electricity consumption) and Scope 3 (locomotive fuel production, purchased goods and services, capital goods, and upstream transportation and distribution) were verified by PricewaterhouseCoopers to a limited level of assurance in accordance with the International Standards on Assurance Engagements 3410, Assurance Engagements on Greenhouse Gas Statements ("ISAE 3410"), issued by the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board with guidance

for the validation and verification of greenhouse gas assertions. The statements can be found at www.cn.ca/delivering-responsibly.

OUR SUSTAINABILITY COMMITMENT

Identifying our Material Topics

In 2020, we received input from 378 stakeholders using an electronic survey to understand the sustainability topics that most influence their decisions or perspectives of CN. Diverse groups were engaged, including employees, suppliers, governments, railway associations, customers, investors, unions, Aboriginal peoples, community groups, and NGOs. The selection and identification of stakeholders considered their geographic representation and their influence and interest in our business. We also engaged with our executive management to further inform the sustainability topics prioritization process.

The most important topics are plotted on our prioritization matrix and are covered in our 2020 full Delivering Responsibly Sustainability Report.

We also identified where the impacts could occur within and outside of our business. The diagram below provides an overview of where our impact could occur along the value chain.

  1. Intermodal units transported are a subset of the carloads transported.
  2. Revenue ton miles (RTMs) refers to the movement of one revenue-producing ton of freight over a distance of one mile. RTMs are calculated by multiplying the weight in tons of the shipment lading being transported (or "tons of lading carried in the Carload") by the number of miles that the shipment (or Carload) is transported on company lines. The tare weight of the car is excluded.
  3. Gross ton miles (GTMs) refers to the movement of one ton of freight or equipment over one mile. GTMs are calculated by multiplying the trailing train weight by the distance the train moved.
