Our success contributes to the social stability of regions around the world. Caterpillar and our employees focus on contributing time and resources to promoting the health and welfare of communities in which we work and live. We conduct our business in a manner that respects human rights. Individually, employees are encouraged to actively engage in activities that contribute to the betterment of society through volunteering time and talents or investing monetary resources in worthwhile community projects and initiatives. In addition, Caterpillar supports the Caterpillar Foundation which has been dedicated to transforming lives in the communities where we live and work around the world since 1952. The Foundation champions programs that support education, environment and basic human needs.
