Caterpillar is committed to sustainability, and contributing to a reduced-carbon future. We demonstrate this in many ways including through our significant progress in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from our operations and our continued investment in new products, technologies and services to help our customers achieve their climate-related objectives as they build a better, more sustainable world.
Caterpillar’s global workforce is united by Our Values in Action, Caterpillar’s Code of Conduct. Integrity, Excellence, Teamwork, Commitment and Sustainability provide the foundation for our values-based culture.
Sustainability, one of our five Values in Action, is part of who we are and what we do. It inspires us to help our customers build a better world.
We have identified a set of focus areas relevant to our business that guide environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives and decision-making throughout our global operations:
- employee health and safety
- operations energy and emissions
- operations water
- operations waste
- product emissions/energy efficiency
- customer safety
- material sourcing
- human capital management
These focus areas were refreshed during our recent goal-setting efforts and are closely aligned with topics covered by the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), Resource Transformation sector and Industrial Machinery & Goods industry.
