Cummins Garners ‘Newsweek’ Green Ranking
Cummins Inc. announced that it is ranked No. 52 among the 500 largest public companies in the United States in Newsweek’s 2014 Green Rankings of businesses and No. 86 among the largest public companies in the world.
“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. Providing efficient and clean power is a win for our company, a win for our customers, and a win for the environment.”
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 company said 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.
