PORTFOLIO-WIDE LEADERSHIP COMMITMENTS
50% GHG reduction in 10 years
A minimum of 12% reduction in Energy Intensity
Cummins Inc. IS PARTICIPATING IN THE FOLLOWING DOE PROGRAMS:
|Better Climate Challenge||Better Plants Challenge|
|Waste Reduction Network||Water Savings Network|
|Low Carbon Pilot||Industrial Energy Performance Accelerator|
The company has established a new set of 2030 goals to build on the success of its 2020 goals, including several aligned to the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement to keep global temperature rise to no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.
Among those new goals is reducing absolute GHG emissions from facilities and operations by 50%. The 2030 goals are included in PLANET 2050, the company’s environmental sustainability strategy adopted in 2019.
The Better Climate Challenge will allow the company to draw on both the expertise of other like-minded organizations and the DOE as well as share what it has learned since Cummins established its first public energy reduction goal some 15 years ago.
Cummins received a 2023 Better Project Award for installing a 3.6 MV solar farm at the Rocky Mount Engine Plant (RMEP) reducing site electricity consumption by 6% and greenhouse gas emissions of over 1,700 metric tons of CO2e, equal to 5% of the site's footprint.
