How Caterpillar
Helps Our Customers

Build a Better World

A better world is within our reach. Caterpillar’s new enterprise strategy allows us to grow profitably so we can continue to innovate solutions that help customers build critical infrastructure and meet people’s basic needs. Though our strategy evolves with a changing marketplace, sustainability remains one of our foundational values, defining not only what we do, but how we do it.


A world in which all people’s basic needs – such as shelter, clean water, sanitation, food and reliable power – are fulfilled in a sustainable way and a company that improves the quality of the environment and the communities where we live and work.


Enable economic growth through infrastructure and energy development, and provide solutions that support communities and protect the planet.
