​​​​​​​​​​​Sustainability has many meanings as it applies to doing business, but the easiest way to think about it is endurance: what does Cummins Inc. do to ensure that we will be growing, prospering and returning value to all stakeholders for a long time to come. That definition requires social responsibility, economic viability, and environmental stewardship, and, to whatever degree we can, Cummins will work with suppliers on those three fronts to support your sustainability.

Social Sustainability

Since companies do not operate in a social vacuum, Cummins is especially aware of the impact it has on the communities where we have our plants, offices, technical centers and distributorships. Our employees live in these places, and many raise families there. If, by our presence, we can make our communities better places to live, we are more than a good company; we are a good citizen.

The third pillar of sustainability is environmental stewardship. Cummins pledges that everything we do will lead to a cleaner, healthier, safer environment.
