“We are building the most important diesel research center in the world,” longtime Cummins Chairman and CEO J. Irwin Miller said a half century ago. “…We mean business. We mean never again to have to respond to a competitor’s development. We mean to beat him on each move, and be out first with a product so clearly superior in economy, bulk, weight and long life that our excellence does not have to be argued.”
CUMMINS’ JAMESTOWN ENGINE PLANT IN JAMESTOWN, NEW YORK (U.S.A) IS FAST DEVELOPING A REPUTATION FOR ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND REDUCING GREENHOUSE GASES (GHGs).
The plant recently showcased its latest initiative, a $47 million block machining line that utilizes on-demand hydraulics, coolant and pneumatics to reduce energy consumption as it produces the company’s high efficiency diesel and natural gas heavy duty engines.
The companies pledged on Sept. 27 in Paris to work to make sales and service available in the target cities no later than 2018 for buses and bus engines with low-emissions technology. Nearly all of the cities benefitting from the partnership are in countries that do not have rigorous emissions regulations.
CUMMINS HAS OPENED ITS FIRST TECHNICAL CENTER FOCUSED ON RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT IN REMANUFACTURING, A KEY COMPONENT OF THE COMPANY’S ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY STRATEGY.

Trade expansion and NAFTA make a difference for Cummins, our suppliers, our employees and their families, and it makes our communities and economies stronger.

“I truly believe that a company is only sustainable when it achieves economic success while acting as social and environmental stewards,” Cummins Chairman and CEO Tom Linebarger says in the introduction of the report. “It’s a goal I hope you’ll see reflected in the pages of this report.”
It was another impressive year in Cummins’ sustainability journey. Here are just a few of the company’s accomplishments in 2016:

CUMMINS NEW CRATE ENGINE PROGRAM, CUMMINS REPOWER™, WILL NOT ONLY GIVE TRUCK ENTHUSIASTS A POWERFUL ALTERNATIVE FOR THEIR OLDER ICONIC OR SENTIMENTAL PROJECTS, BUT A CLEANER, MORE FUEL EFFICIENT OPTION, TOO.
