Cummins CEO sets new environmental benchmarks

WEST LAFAYETTE — Cummins Chairman and CEO Tom Linebarger Friday outlined the company’s most extensive plan to date for environmental sustainability, including specific goals for reducing waste, water and energy.

A core part of the company’s mission is demanding that everything Cummins does leads to a cleaner, healthier and safer environment, which has also proven to be a business advantage, Cummins said in a statement.

“Customers depend on us to help them achieve success and improve their bottom line while consumers rely on us to power the trucks, trains and ships that deliver their goods and services,” Linebarger told an afternoon audience at Purdue University.

“We also understand we have many stakeholders and we make every effort to deliver economic value to each of them. Equally important is delivering on our environmental mission and 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,” Linebarger.
