Cummins Releases New Sustainability Progress Report
Cummins, for example, exceeded its 2020 goal for reducing water use intensity five years early and met the company’s 2015 goal for energy / greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction, according to the report. Cummins 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.
In Corporate Responsibility, the company reported that 80 percent of its employees and contractors participated in some kind of community engagement activity in 2015. Cummins’ Environmental Challenge competition removed a record 36,810 metric tons of GHGs.
“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 Chairman and CEO
Tom Linebarger in his introductory letter to the report.
While the report includes statistics on everything from the makeup of company’s waste stream to how much Cummins spends with diverse suppliers, it also contains numerous examples of company employees living Cummins’ values.
