Cummins Raises the Bar on Sustainability Efforts

“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.”

Virtual Reality Helps Cummins See the Big Picture

In some ways, the cave at the Cummins Technical Center (CTC) in Columbus, Indiana (USA) is aptly named. Tucked away in the basement and dark much of the time, its inhabitants seem to prefer large, dark glasses, even when the lights are dim.

What some call the company’s “mobile locomotive testing lab,” also demonstrated over 12 months that it has plenty of muscle, too.
