Environment, Health & Safety

At Caterpillar, sustainability begins within our own operations. We have established high performance standards for environment, health and safety at our facilities that extend beyond compliance with laws and regulations. Proactive implementation of these standards demonstrates our commitment to sustainability leadership in our industry.

Caterpillar is dedicated to the long-term health and safety of everyone on Caterpillar property and protecting the environment in which we operate.

Our Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) Professionals have teamed with Caterpillar leadership to drive tremendous improvement and heightened awareness of the importance of EHS across our enterprise. Employees of Team Caterpillar are engaged in identifying and managing risk and are active participants in continuously improving the environment, health and safety of our operations. These successes have moved us closer to our Vision 2020 goals as we continue our drive to world-class.
