|Cummins Ranked Among World's Best in Newsweek's 2014 Green Rankings|
"This recognition from Newsweek underscores the commitment of our Company and our employees to an important part of our corporate mission -- demanding that everything we do leads to a cleaner, healthier, safer environment," said
Last month, Cummins announced its latest and most comprehensive plan to reduce its global environmental footprint, which is detailed in the Company's 2013-2014 Sustainability Report.
The plan is just the next step for Cummins, which has been working hard to reduce its environmental footprint for decades. Late in the 1990s Cummins began to view its technical expertise as a key competitive advantage to meet increasingly stringent emission regulations. Countries around the world continue to implement stricter air pollution standards, and Cummins is able to deliver products that not only comply with those standards but also provide the renowned power and reliability that customers depend on.
The latest plan to reduce the Company's environmental footprint came together after nearly two years of study and 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). The plan prioritizes addressing its biggest environmental opportunities -- from the materials it buys to the emissions and fuel efficiency of its products, and the Company has already moved forward with setting specific, measureable goals for Cummins' operations.
