CUMMINS EXPANDED THE DISCLOSURE OF ITS GREENHOUSE GAS FOOTPRINT IN 2015 TO INCLUDE THE LIFETIME CARBON DIOXIDE EMISSIONS OF THE COMPANY'S PRODUCTS SOLD IN 2014.
Cummins has reported its facility greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to CDP, formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project, for 10 years. In 2015, for the first time, the company reported to CDP its estimate that the collective CO2 emissions of the just over 1 million engines Cummins and its joint venture partners sold in 2014 would be 914 million metric tons over their useful lives of 10, 20 or even 40 years.
These engines power trucks, trains, ships, and more, delivering needed goods, food and medicine around the world. They power school buses, emergency vehicles like fire engines and off-highway vehicles such as tractors critical to food production and excavators essential to building roads and bridges. Finally, they power the generators essential to schools, hospitals and data centers.
