These and other achievements are highlighted in Cummins’ 2015–2016 Sustainability Progress Report, which details the company’s performance in areas ranging from its environmental practices to its corporate responsibility initiatives.
The filter manufacturer has also made significant progress on its goal of working with customers to reduce the carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted by company products in use, nearly reaching the half-way point to its 2020 goal.
The report profiles teams in India and the UK for their work with customers to reduce CO2 from company products in use. Cummins teams in Brazil, India and Minnesota, USA are featured for their winning projects in the company’s Environmental Challenge. A Cummins employee is also highlighted for helping turn a former Superfund waste site into an outdoor classroom where students learn about science, technology, engineering and maths.
Meanwhile 80% of Cummins’ employees and contractors participated in some kind of community engagement activity in 2015.
“If we do our job right, our company can help build stronger communities, extend economic opportunity to more people and help address the environmental challenges facing the world today,” said Cummins chairman and CEO Tom Linebarger in his introductory letter to the report.
