Caterpillar is focused on energy and emissions reduction in our own business, and helping customers decrease their carbon footprints through machinery and power solutions that contribute to lowering greenhouse gas emissions. Supported by our Enterprise Technology Strategy, research and development focus areas include high-efficiency energy conversion and electrification, working to increase power density, expand the use of alternative fuels, maximize efficiency of power systems and introduce more electrification into our product lines.
We are developing a range of equipment that includes internal combustion engines, hybrids and fully electric systems that help customers around the world meet their business goals for power utilization and owning and operating costs.
We provide U.S. EPA Tier 4/EU Stage IV, EU Stage V or equivalent products in North American, European and Japanese markets. U.S. EPA Tier 4 emissions standards (as well as EU Stage IIIB & Stage IV emissions regulations) provide a 90% reduction in emissions (NOx and particulate matter) when compared to Tier 3 standards. Customers in all segments express increased interest in cost-saving benefits of more fuel-efficient and fuel-flexible products. Modular offerings within our product lines allow customization of equipment to provide the optimal mix of technology, emissions profile and cost that best suit customer needs.
