Cummins unveils environmental stewardship goals

US engine manufacturer, Cummins, has outlined its most extensive plan to date for environmental sustainability, including specific goals for reducing waste, water and energy.

A core part of the company's mission is demanding that everything Cummins does leads to a cleaner, healthier and safer environment, which has also proven to be a business advantage.

“Customers depend on us to help them achieve success and improve their bottom line while consumers rely on us to power the trucks, trains and ships that deliver their goods and services,” the company announced.

“We also understand we have many stakeholders and we make every effort to deliver economic value to each of them. Equally important is delivering on our environmental mission and making a positive impact on communities around the world. Providing efficient and clean power is a win for our Company, a win for our customers, and a win for the environment.”

The plan for the first time brings together stakeholders from all corners of the company to execute a coordinated approach to the environment. Cummins examined its environmental footprint, putting special focus on water, waste and energy and greenhouse gases (GHGs). It prioritises actions for the company to address its biggest environmental opportunities – from the materials it buys to the emissions of its products.

“With millions of engines and generators in service, and customers in 190 countries and territories, there's no question that Cummins has the global reach to make a positive impact on the environment.”
