Cummins Water Works

Strengthening communities through sustainable water.

Cummins Water Works is our multi-million dollar commitment to strengthening communities through sustainable water and addressing the global water crisis.

The program focuses on being part of the collective action required to solve the growing global water crisis afflicting communities, with direct negative effects on health, education, gender equity and the growth of entire economies. Today, about 785 million people lack access to basic drinking water, and by 2050 at least one in four people will likely live in a country affected by chronic or recurring water shortages. A problem this large requires coordinated action to effectuate sustainable, innovative and local solutions. Cummins Water Works specifically aims to bring fresh water to 20 million people who will not otherwise have access to it.

Water is the primary medium through which we experience the effects of climate change – from drought to flooding. PLANET 2050 is Cummins’ metrics-based sustainability strategy focusing on our operations, customers, and supply chain. Cummins Water Works extends our commitment to environmental sustainability, focusing on ensuring availability and sustainable management of water in our communities.

In Cummins Water Works, we are partnering with leading water experts and leveraging our unique experiences, skills and capabilities to make a large-scale impact. Cummins joined the Water Resilience Coalition, a United Nations-sanctioned working group comprised of water-related nonprofit organizations and more than a dozen major global companies focused on analyzing, prioritizing, implementing and managing high-impact water projects in major water-stressed regions around the world.

The initiative will focus first on five of the most water-stressed countries: Mexico, Brazil, India, South Africa and the U.S. Cummins employees have already innovated with impactful local water solutions. The ambitious Monsoon Resilient Maharashtra project in India is scaling to help local rural communities devise scientific and practical methods to be less vulnerable to climate-related shifts in water availability. Due to projects like this, Cummins water projects have generated more than four billion gallons in annual water benefits to communities.

Cummins Water Works unites with Cummins Powers Women, Cummins TEC: Technical Education for Communities and Cummins CARE, our U.S. commitment to racial equity, in working to solve significant community problems with global strategic solutions using the skills and ingenuity of Cummins employees. Cummins is committed to tackling the most urgent crises experienced by our global communities and achieve our mission of making people’s lives better by powering a more prosperous world.
