At Cummins, we strive every day to improve the quality of life for people in the communities where we operate, here in the United States and around the world.

As a result of our efforts and those of other leading companies, America’s business community has decreased greenhouse gas emissions, improved energy efficiency, conserved water, reduced waste and protected the environment – achievements that benefit the United States and the entire world.

A new Business Roundtable report, Create, Grow, Sustain: People and Technology at Work,” highlights the sustainability record of 133 companies, including ours here at Cummins. We are proud of our efforts, which have helped drive sustainable business investment, economic growth and job creation – while improving the communities where all of us work and live.

Here’s one example of how we at Cummins are ensuring a sustainable future for generations to come:

“Cummins has been working closely with our customers to reduce the fuel consumed by our products on the ground and in use both to help them save money and, at the same time, improve the environment…We are already a third of the way toward our ‘products in-use’ goal of an annual 3.5 million metric ton reduction in CO2 by 2020…” – Tom Linebarger, Chairman and CEO, Cummins, Business Roundtable 2016 Sustainability Report

We encourage you to learn more about our efforts here. You can also read the full Business Roundtable report here or by clicking on the image below.

    why is that Cummins does not provide fuel shutoff valves on their gas generators for RV’s nor do they provide instructions on shutting down the unit for several months by running the engine dry and draining the carb bowl. My generator on a Thor ACE was sitting around long enough on the lot and delivery to gum up the gen carb, but I of course did not find out until I owned the unit and was then responsible for replacing the carb. I have looked at the replaced carb and can find no varnish, all the jets provide free air flow. After talking with several other cummins genset owners I am beginning to believe their is a conspiracy between cummins and the local RV dealers that blame any type of fuel problem on the carb and a quick replacement for over $200 labor since they know and cummins seems to reinforce the fact their carb is easily gummed up. Lastly the claim that cummins or the dealers cannot not open the carb because of a law that says the settings cannot be changed is a total mischaracterization of the rule. opening up the carb with a few nuts and cleaning requires no adjustments. Another strange rule that cummins and the RV dealers take advantage for $gain.

    I always love seeing big companies take a step back and think about their impact. This is really important when it comes to setting a good example and doing the right thing.

    Good job Cummings!
