Our ESG framework guides our initiatives throughout our global operations. These focus areas include our work to support a lower-carbon future, employee and customer safety, the power of Caterpillar people and the values that guide our actions.
Supporting a Lower-Carbon Future
Caterpillar supports the goals of the Paris Agreement to limit global temperature rise, and we are committed and contributing to a reduced-carbon future. We demonstrate our commitment in many ways, including through significant progress in reducing GHG emissions from our operations. We are helping our customers achieve their climate-related goals by continuing to invest in new products, technologies and services that facilitate fuel flexibility, increased operational efficiency and reduced emissions.
The safety and well-being of those who work in our facilities and those who work in, on and around our Caterpillar products is of the utmost importance for Caterpillar and one of the hallmarks of our operational excellence.
At Caterpillar, we believe in The Power of Everyone as a source of innovation and competitive advantage. Our people come from across the globe, with diverse backgrounds, experiences and perspectives united by Our Values in Action. Our employees care deeply about our mission and purpose and play an important role in helping our customers build a better, more sustainable world.
A robust governance framework and responsible business practices create long-term value for our shareholders, strengthens board and management accountability and builds trust in the company and our brand.
