You might know Cummins by our signature red engines, but lately we’ve been seeing a lot of green. In February, the Cummins-Peterbilt “SuperTruck” passed an important milestone by achieving more than 10.7 mpg under real world driving conditions. In May, we released our 2013/2014 Sustainability Report – our most comprehensive report yet. And just today, Cummins was named one of the world’s “greenest” companies by Newsweek in their Green Rankings, 2014.
“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 Tom Linebarger, Cummins Chairman and CEO. “We believe our focus on the environment allows us to deliver economic value to our stakeholders while making a positive impact on communities around the world.”
The rankings, which rate the world’s largest companies on corporate sustainability and environmental impact, validate the company’s decades-long efforts on reducing its environmental footprint. Simply put, environmental sustainability is a win for Cummins, a win for our customers and a win for the environment.
The latest Newsweek rankings list Cummins No. 52 among the 500 largest public companies in the United States and No. 86 among the largest public companies in the world. Overall, the company ranks far ahead of its industry peers for environmental sustainability.
