Caterpillar has a long-standing commitment to sustainability, with our history of sustainable innovation spanning more than 95 years. We share the concerns of governments and the public about the risks of climate change and support global efforts to mitigate its impact. We are committed to further reducing Caterpillar’s greenhouse gas emissions while helping our customers meet their climate-related objectives. We are supporting our customers during the energy transition to a lower-carbon future through investments in new products, technologies and services. We have established seven sustainability goals to achieve by 2030, including five climate- and environmental-related goals and two focused on employee and customer safety.
