Cummins named among top green companies

Posted By Equipment World Staff On October 24, 2012 @ 3:59 pm In Construction News | No Comments

Cummins [1] is ranked #64 among the 500 largest public companies in the United States [2] in Newsweek’s 2012 Green Rankings [3] of businesses. Cummins is ranked #1 among industrial companies [4].

Cummins reported a number of possible reasons for its high rankings, such as its technology devoted to product emissions standards; a second greenhouse gas reduction goal from 2005-2015; its multi-pronged water management strategy that blends conservation, risk management and community involvement; its corporate responsibility focus; voluntarily reporting through the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) since 2006 along with the CDP Water Project in 2012; and more.

The Newsweek methodology [5] compares the actual environmental footprints, management (policies, programs, initiatives and controversies) and reporting practices of big companies. Newsweek teamed with Trucost [6] and Sustainalytics [7] to gather and analyze the data.
