ENVIRONMENT MONTH STARTED AS A GRASSROOTS EFFORT IN ONE CUMMINS BUSINESS UNIT A FEW YEARS AGO.
Today, the month-long event has grown to more than 30,000 employees and 67 global sites participating in the company’s June Environment Month.
While participation has tripled since 2014, the message remains the same: Even small actions taken consistently across the company can make a big difference.
Cummins employees in Qatar, for example, reduced their paper printing by 75 percent in one week. Employees in Mexico planted 300 trees while their counterparts in the U.K. upgraded to energy efficient lightbulbs. There were energy fairs, carpool arrangements and climate change quiz shows.
